The new DIMM on the block
Subject: Memory | May 16, 2007 - 02:40 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
AnandTech has grabbed 2 DIMMs of DDR3-1066 running at 7-7-7-20 and an ASUS P5K3 Deluxe. The contrast that pairing with an ASUS P5B Deluxe and Corsair's Dominator DDR2-1111. They varied the speeds to get a better idea of performance, unfortunately there are no DDR3-1333 DIMMs available yet, but when they are they will revisit the test to see what effect the raw speed has. Is timing everything?
"What this review does address is the performance of the new DDR3 memory that is launched with P35. The new Intel P35
chipset, known as Bearlake during development, supports either DDR2 or DDR3 memory. This presented a perfect opportunity
to look at the performance of both DDR3 and DDR2 on the new P35 chipset. We were also able to compare performance to a
Gold Editors' Choice Intel P965 motherboard. The results of these comparisons provided interesting results about the
capabilities of the new P35 memory controller. It also answered the question of whether you should care about DDR3 in any
upcoming system purchase."
