The following specifications have been taken directly from Mushkin's website:
"The eXtreme Performance 512M HP2-5300 module (DDR2-667) offers enhanced second generation memory throughput and stability for the most demanding DDR2 computing platforms. A product of Mushkin's exclusive EPIC (Enhanced Performance IC) selection process, the HP2-5300 is hand-tested to the highest quality and performance standards. The module is an unbuffered 240-Pin Double Data Rate x2 (DDR2) Synchronous DRAM Dual In-Line Memory Module (DIMM), organized as a single-bank 64Mx64 high speed memory array using 64Mx8 chip density. This DIMM achieves high-speed data transfer rates of 667MHz at latencies of 4-4-4-12 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS). The HP2-5300 is enhanced by Mushkin's Frostbyte heatspreader to ensure superior thermal performance and system reliability. With extreme performance and Mushkin's renowned reliability, the HP2-5300 is the memory upgrade of choice for those DDR2 enthusiasts looking for more out of their high-performance system."
Module Density: 64Mx64
Chip Density: 64Mx8
It's good to see that Mushkin have managed to keep the required voltage low and still maintain good timings. Many other memory modules from other manufacturers require around 2.1v+ to achieve low latencies and good speeds which can reduce the lifetime of the modules due to the extra heat produced from the increased voltage.
