- Latency Settings and their Impact on Memory Performance

To help people better understand the principles behind latency timings in common memory modules along with the influences these varying timings have on system performance, Corsair have constructed an in-depth PDF application note which goes right over the whole subject of memory timings, what they mean, and how overall performance is affected. For those of you who wish to get a better understanding in the world of memory timings, this is a Very well written and easy to grasp guide.


Memory modules are currently available which support a wide variety of different speeds and latency settings. Speed is easy to understand - in general, faster is better. But what do the latency settings mean? And, what impact do they have on memory performance? This paper will provide a brief background on latency settings and what they mean. Then, we will move to the lab, where we will run a suite of benchmarks over a wide variety of latency settings, and we will measure the impact of these settings on benchmark scores.
