Default Are Samsung TCCD IC's Dead?

Legit Reviews investigates the subject.

This would be a devastating blow to the overclocking/enthusiast community as these are currently the only IC's that can hit low latency timings of 2-2-2-5 for DDR1 memory. Many in the hardware community will recall the famous Winbond BH-5 IC's, and when their production ended the industry was without any true low latency memory.
