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.

Uh?

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.

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.
