DDR2 Memory Latency Performance

Posted on Thursday, March 22 2007 @ 04:16:22 CET by

Recently I tested a number of DDR2 memory configurations ranging from 667MHz through to 1181MHz and determined that the Intel Core 2 Duo processors are not really affected by memory frequency. Rather, it appeared that memory timings were more important. So today I have an article for you comparing various memory timings at 800MHz. Once again the results are very interesting and certainly not what I was expecting...

The point of the DDR2 Memory Frequency Performance article was to prove that when overclocking, the 1:1 ratio is not important and we proved this with the 1066MHz configuration. Moving on, there were a few good suggestions made by readers about the first article that they would have liked to have seen. That being a broader range of memory timings, not just memory frequencies, so it could be determined whether low-latency DDR2-800 memory for example, was really required. While this kind of testing could have been done with DDR2-533 or even DDR2-667 memory, we chose DDR2-800 memory as it is the more popular choice. Furthermore, the price difference between these three standards is often very minimal.
