Buffalo FireStix: Red Hot Name for a New High-End Memoryby Wesley Fink on July 22, 2004 12:05 AM EST

Buffalo Technology has become a well known manufacturer of memory, wired and wireless network products, and storage solutions. You will find a full range of Buffalo memory products available from many on-line resellers, including regular DIMMs, SO-DIMMs, and Registered memory for servers, desktop computers, and notebooks. However, Buffalo is not a first name that comes to mind when Enthusiasts are looking for high-performance memory. Buffalo is out to change that with the introduction of their new FireStix memory.
Two new FireStix memory products were just introduced - FireStix FSX500DV and FireStix FSX433DV - at DDR500 (PC4000) and DDR433 (PC3500). FireStix is a great name for memory that is supposed to be "hot", and Buffalo has added to the image with flame-red heatspreaders that certainly stand out in any group of memory. However, as you expect at AnandTech, we were most interested to see if FireStix live up to their name with stand-out performance to match the stand-out looks.
