Why RDRAM is FASTER than DDR?

  1. I just built a brand spanking new system based on a i845E chipset (Abit IT7-MAX2) using 1GB of 2700 DDR Memory...All I have to say is BUMP.

    pc1066 rdram has 4.2gb/sec of bandwidth... your pc2700 ddr has 2.7gb/sec of bandwidth.

    just answering your question.

    ROTF... I don't think he feels too hot right now... but least the memory is good if he ever migrates to a newer mobo...

    hang on... he just built that didn't he?

    well performance hit is not that much...

    btw comparing rdram 1066 to ddr 2700 is ludicrous.... look @ prices... :)

    true top of line system would be a rdram system but it'll be interesting to see what happens when ddr II comes out...

    ddr 3500 right now is a waste but might be good for something soon..
