Power Memory International is a new brand of high-end memory for AnandTech, but PMI has been producing memory modules and IC components since 1990. Where the primary focus in the past has been OEM parts, PMI is now attempting to break into the memory module market with their own brands. The company shows a product line that includes desktop DDR and SDRAM memory, notebook memory, CTML-certified server memory, and their newest "Turbo Memory" for the computer enthusiast. The PMI line also shows memory module sizes up to 1GB.

One of the problems with new brands is getting attention from the computer press. PMI has been trying very hard to garner that attention by producing some of the fastest rated memory modules that you can buy. PMI calls this their "Turbo Memory" series.

The Turbo line includes memory from DDR333 to the DDR533 that we are testing here. However, with Corsair and OCZ producing DDR550 for bragging rights, PMI has just introduced DDR566 at CeBIT, which is the fastest rated memory that we have seen.

    As I have explained several times, as Editors we can't do a thing about the lack of bar color. We want it as much as you do. Our current Graphing Engine which is used to generate the Java Charts does not have that capability. We have been promised this WILL be an option in an upcoming upgrade to the Graphing Engine.

    We use Java charts because they use less bandwidth than any other charting option. If you look at the traffic on AnandTech you can appreciate how precious ANY bandwidth savings is to us - and to your browsing speed.

    Write Anand or Jason Clark with your complaints. I do understand the charts would be MUCH more readable if the reviewed item was in a different color. Unfortunately I can't do a thing about it - but Anand and Jason can.

    Are you guys too cheap to buy a new box of crayons or what? Would it kill you to have colored the PMI bar red on the graphs? Could I please just get an explanation so I can quit complaining about this every time you post a new article? Why is my dinghy smaller after I go swimming? Why cant I buy pork boullion? Why cant I buy toast in the store? I think you guys are smart enough to answer all of these questions but you are too stingy to share your genius. Elitists! Reply

    Now if only XGI had had this kind of showing...

    Funny how the memory sector has gotten so competitive lately. It seems as though just a year ago my only choices were Corsair, Geil, Kingston, or Samsung; of those four, Corsair was the top. Either I missed all the other competitors, or they just weren't as highly ranked as they are now.
