Nehalem to bring unprecedented memory bandwidth

20GB/sec reads good enough?

| RAM News | Posted: Oct 10, 2008 12:03 am

Following the launch of A-DATAs new triple channel memory kits for the upcoming X58 platform, the company decided to get together with ASUS and stick the three modules into a P6T Deluxe motherboard, which we've heard and seen a lot of in recent times.

 

Not satisfied at the rated 1600MHz speed, A-DATA pushed the modules to speeds of over 2000MHz and then proceeded to demonstrate just how awesome the memory bandwidth is on Nehalem.

As you can see above, the result was a massive 20GB/sec read speed and just under 17MB/sec write; leaving any Core 2 setup well in the dust.

 

I'll now leave you to feast your eyes on ASUS' fully fledged Rampage II Extreme X58 board, ready and waiting for those with deep pockets.
