Crucial pours on the speed

Subject: Memory | February 16, 2006 - 05:40 PM |

While AMD enthusuasts await the day they can use DDR2, memory makers are continuing to improve the speed, since Intel chipsets do support it.  Neoseeker reviews Crucial's Ballistix PC2-6400 (800Mhz), a perfect example of how tight timings (4-4-4-10) can push performance to almost equal the performance of PC2-8000 (1000Mhz).

"The Crucial PC2-6400 got the second highest score here -- it was only 4.2% slower than the

Corsair PC2-8000, even though the PC2-8000 was running at a 25% faster memory clock rate. Please

note how much faster the PC2-6400 is with the tweaked settings than running at SPD speeds - 167.4

FPS vs. 118.8 FPS, or a 41% increase in frame rates due to the better timings!"
