DDR2 Memory Frequency Performance

Posted on Friday, March 16 2007 @ 11:12:43 CET by


Overclocking is a popular means to getting more performance out of a computer without having to spend money. Though these days people seem to be spending more money than they really need to on power supplies with high output ratings and memory designed to operate at extreme frequencies. Today we explore the need for high performance memory and discover that it might not be in your best interests to purchase this kind of memory!

Well there you have it, the results may be a little hard to swallow for those that shelled out big dollars for high speed memory under the impression that is was actually faster. I have to admit, while I did not expect huge gains, I did expect that on a 500MHz FSB DDR2-1181 memory would be faster! Strangely this just is not the case and as it turns out, low latency memory is far more beneficial to Core 2 Duo owners. When you consider that a 1:1 ratio on a 500MHz FSB means the memory will be operating at 1000MHz, it is hard to believe DDR2-667 has a chance, let alone believe it to be faster.

Check it out over at Legion Hardware.
