    What is faster?

    DDR 333 vs RAMBUS PC800-40 512MB RIMM

    Any sites with comparisons or benchmarks?

    I would go with PC 1066 but price and availabilty are a problem in hawaii.

    RAMBUS is faster then any DDR thats out so far

    I definitely disagree that PC-800 RDRAM is faster than any DDR-333.

    I just benched my 333. Their are other bechmarks all over the web that prove that 333 is just as fast and faster than PC-800.

    PC-1066 might be another story but it is spendy stuff.

    oh well lol from what i heard from people rambus is supposed to be faster but i dont really care i use DDR anyway isnt there supposed to be a new type of DDR coming out called DDR2 or something someone posted something a while back about that.not sure if its true tho

    its not the speed you should worry about... its the bandwidth :)

    the top of the line rdram... 1066 is the fastest and has the best bandwidth... but it is only a little more than the ddr2700...

    also rdram commands a premium in price... :)

    pc800 (800mhz) rambus and pc3200 (400mhz) ddr both have 3.2gb/sec of bandwidth. 333mhz ddr has 2.7gb/sec (hence pc2700) and so on. pc1066 rambus has 4.2gb/sec of bandwidth... the most out of all memory interfaces.

    but ddr has a future.. unlike rambus.
