Another look at DDR3 memory

Posted on Saturday, July 14 2007 @ 19:25:13 CEST by

We've already seen a bunch of DDR3 articles and here's one more, this time from X-bit Labs. They take a look at whether this new type of memory is a revolution or just normal evolution.
So, we can say that although there is no real need, Intel still decided to increase the memory subsystem bandwidth on their platforms built around Core 2 processors. Although we have already demonstrated in our previous articles that you can get comparable performance improvement by simply reducing the latencies of the memory subsystem, Intel decided to go towards higher frequencies rather than lower timings. And there is a logical reason for that decision: increasing the working frequencies and shifting to the new DDR3 technology at the same time is much easier for the memory makers. The main purpose of our today’s article is to answer the following question: will the new DDR3 SDRAM with higher working frequency and higher latency provide a performance improvement for Intel P35 based systems compared with the contemporary DDR2 SDRAM..
