AMD's Socket AM2 crippled by DDR2

Posted on Wednesday, April 19 2006 @ 03:48:07 CEST by

The Inquirer reports AMD's new Socket AM2 platform will be up to roughly five percent faster, but not much more than that.

The move to DDR2 memory won't increase performance a lot as this memory still has some latency hang-ups.
Funnily enough, the price of DDR 2 should be three to five percent higher than DDR 1 at launch time, so you can easily work out the price of performance.

But it won’t be an easy task to convince the people that it is imperative to move from DDR 1 Athlons to DDR 2 ones.
