Memory Performance: Part 1
Posted on: 10/04/2000 10:01 PM

Posting this from Ontario (I get around don't I?). Firingsquad has posted up an article looking into a common topic now adays, Memory Performance.
With VIA's adoption of the PC133 platform last year, an affordable, backward-compatible upgrade path from conventional 100MHz SDRAM was made available to consumers, increasing system memory bandwidth from 800MB/sec to 1.0GB/sec. How much performance does this equate to in real-world applications? The answer varies depending on the clock speed of your processor (as you'll find out once we get to the numbers), as well as the CAS latency of your memory module.
Check this out.
