It was at the very end of last year that Patriot Memory announced the commencement of a new series named Gamer 2 (G2 for short). This new series of memory, again, like many of our recent memory product reviews is focussed on the new Sandy Bridge platform. Apart from their attractive price-tag they also have a number of pleasing characteristics - they are extremely low profile, so much so that the heatspreaders are in fact shorter than the modules they cover. They are also said to give impressive performance figures too.
Being the first Patriot review at Vortez we are excited at the prospect of this product review. Hopefully it will be all smiles! Today we will be looking at a 1600MHz 8GB kit with CAS timings of 9-9-9-24 at 1.65v. Lets waste no more time and begin our analysis of Patriot Memory's Gamer 2 series.
