Default Low Latency DDR2

http://www.pcmoddingmy.com/content.php?review.218

So it seems DDR2 is finally getting in the game with some high FSB's and low latencies....good to see it.

That has 3-2-2-5 timings I believe at DDR2533, not bad indeed.

At 1.8v at that

and a while ago low latency ddr2 was a oxymoron. Its still my opinion that intel shouldnt have jumped on ddr2 so quickly. DDR is still out performing DDR 2!

Bah, it is the future, like it or not. Better off being able to buy a DDR2 compatible system now then have to upgrade everything later.

What I can't believe are the benchmark improvements they got from just the RAM OC. About 30 FPS in CSS:S!!!!

DDR2 is fast, I'll give it that, I think they have PC2-6400 availible right now, but the timings are just ridiculous, I think it had something like 5-5-5-12.

The future? that's what they said about rambus memory...some future. I'll have to see it to believe it, but I won't hold my breathe
