DDR2 vs DDR3 RAMpage

X-bit Labs has gathered RAM at several different speeds and latencies to see how well DDR3 is doing at taking over DDR2s spot in the hearts of enthusiasts.  You shouldn't expect to see a clear cut victor though, even though DDR3 has jumped from 1333MHz to 1800MHz in a very short time, many tests depend on low latency, and that doesn't begin to touch on the current pricing of 1800MHz modules.

DDR3 gets a Crucial update

Crucial's Ballistix PC3-12800 CL8 can hit 1780MHz, with 8-8-8-20 timings at a voltage of 1.8V, for under $700.  While that won't break any speed records, and it resists any attempts to tighten the timing , PC Stats still likes this memory for anyone looking for reliable RAM with a rock solid warranty

DDR3 on the X38

Intel's new chipset seems quite fond of DDR3, giving it's performance a small boost when compared to similarly clocked DDR2.   AnandTech didn't have one of those boards handy for their testing of new modules from Corsair, Kingston and Cell Shock, but a P35 based board will do in a pinch.  The performance of DDR3 is rising rapidly, as the latencies fall, although the prices have not changed much.  If you can afford these newer DIMMs, you won't be disappointed by their performance.

Neoseeker has posted a review of the fastest RAM I have ever seen benchmarked, at least once overclocked.  OCZ's Platinum DDR3 PC3-14400 (1800MHz) @ 8-8-8-27 has been relabeled to 8-8-8-24, but they reviewed it at the higher latency, and managed to get a bit of an overclock without relaxing them further.  Too bad it is also the most expensive RAM I have seen as

Do penguins like DDR3?

Phoronix tried out an ASUS Blitz Extreme with a pair of OCZ's 1GB DDR3-1333
at various clock speeds
.  They installed Fedora 7 with the Linux 2.6.22.4 kernel, GCC 4.1, and X server 1.3 and used RAMspeed 2.5.0 to see how the performance scaled at different speeds.  The RAM still comes at a premium, but it does look like you can expect to see at least some benefit to using the new DDR standard.
