While a lot of people are not going to have the need for memory rated at 400MHz, however people upgrading to the new 800MHz FSB Pentium 4's for example are going to find this perfect to go with their new system. Not everyone wants to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on memory when they can purchase something that may not be as fast but will defiantly do the job. Most people will find themselves running the memory at 266MHz, like we tested at today, as most people run at default speeds. At these speeds you defiantly notice a difference when it comes to using high quality memory compared to some of the cheaper modules on the market.
It was interesting to note that the two cheapest modules, Crucial and Kingmax, held first and second place through most of the benchmarks we performed. This would be an excellent purchase if you are someone looking at upgrading to a 400MHz processor / chipset combo in the near future but wouldn't mind having a memory upgrade now for that little bit of performance boost.
It was defiantly interesting to learn that the memory was capable of transforming its lead in Sandra and PC Mark over to the real world gaming benchmarks. Considering all memory modules ran at exactly the same setting it was somewhat of a surprise to find quite a large difference in some of the benchmarks.
Overall Crucial have produced an excellent stick that was able to hold itself up to some of the more expensive memory available on the market.
