X79 is here and that simply means a change in the way that things are done. It doesn't just mean a new motherboard and a new processor, but also a new memory architecture. In terms of Intel, X58 saw us utilising Tri-channel memory, whilst Sandy Bridge P67/H67 and Z68 saw the famous dual-channel memory being the chosen technology which rivalled AMD with the same tech.
X79 does things a bit differently though, by using Quad-channel memory will theoretically quadruple the memory's available bandwidth as long as the modules are identical. GeIL have decided to be on the ball and have already got some quad channel kits ready for market and being honest, we've had it for quite some time, waiting for X79 to be released so that we can look into the potential of quad channel memory and what it can do.
Today sees us taking a look at their 1333MHz 16GB kit which is part of the famous and slightly new Enhance Corsa range of modules. We've seen the potential behind the dual-channel kit so let's get straight in and see what these are all about.
