DDR2 Memory Latency Performance On nForce 680i SLI

| RAM News | Posted: Mar 21, 2007 11:38 pm

Still tinkering with the OC on your Core2Duo based PC? Not getting the results you expected and think it might be your mediocre DDR2-667 memory holding you back? Then this fresh article over at LegionHardware will set you at ease and prove that memory performance alone holds very little significance with these platforms.


Recently I published an article titled "DDR2 Memory Frequency Performance" which looked at the value of high speed memory. The reason I found the need to write such an article was to demonstrate that there really is no need to try and overclock your memory when pushing a Core 2 Duo processor to the max. Often readers complain about poor Core 2 Duo overclocking performance and 99% of the time it comes down to memory instability at higher frequencies. This article showed that when running a Core 2 Duo E6700 on a 500MHz FSB, DDR2-667 was just as fast as DDR2-1181 memory and in some cases even faster.
