Cost-effective DDR2 and DDR3 modules from Zeppelin

As far as memories are concerned, we have been able to see a new release relatively long ago, but this time the products of a manufacturer we have not visited before have arrived for viewing. This company is Zeppelin, about which we know very little, and even less, but two things are certain: it provides a lifetime warranty for the modules, and they are also sold at a very reasonable price. Nowadays, the choice between DDR2 and DDR3 memories is a growing dilemma, as the price of the latter has dropped significantly in the recent period, and those who may be thinking about Core i7 are forced to use the modules of the newer standard. The price advantage is still in favor of DDR2, and perhaps there is still a greater selection of motherboards that support DDR2.

In this article, we have been looking for the answer to roughly how a cheap DDR2 memory is currently related to a cheap DDR3 module. Unfortunately, the conditions are not ideal, as on the DDR2 front we were able to service the GIGABYTE EP45-Extreme, while on the DDR3 we were able to put the GIGABYTE X48T-DQ6 on, but perhaps there is no significant memory management difference between the two chipsets. that we will not be able to draw any conclusions from the test results.

The modules:

  • Zeppelin DDR2 800 MHz 5-5-5-18 (2 × 1 GB)
  • Zeppelin DDR3 1333 MHz 8-8-8-24 (2 × 2 GB)

As you can see, the amount of memory varies, so the tests aren't really meant to be a battle with each other, but a kind of health check in terms of what a cost-effective memory of the two standards is capable of today on two motherboards that are very close to each other. Before we cut in, take a closer look at these Zeppelin products…
