128 MB Mushkin High
Performance Revision 3 222 Ram Review - SiSoft Sandra Performance
Pentium 3 550E (@550 and 733 MHz)
Abit BE6-II Motherboard
Hercules 3D Prophet II 32 MB @ 200/350MHz
Beta Detonator Driver version 6.50 (Gateway)
SB Live X-Gamer (High Quality Sound)
20 GB Quantum LM with ATA/66
I tested the memory at a front side bus speed of 100 MHz as well
as at 133MHz to see the improvement in performance that CAS 2 holds over CAS 3.

They're sizing each other up...
SiSoft Sandra 2001
is a complete benchmarking suite that is capable of focusing on many
aspects of systems running Windows 9x/Me. Let's see the improvement in
performance achieved when I switched my 128 MB stick of Micron RAM with the
Mushkin sample. I turned the CAS settings of the Mushkin stick down to 3 to
compare the performance of both sticks on a level playing field.
I'll begin with the performance with the front side bus speed of
Micron @ 100MHz
Mushkin Cas 3 @ 100 MHz
Mushkin Cas 2 @ 100 MHz
Micron @ 133 MHz
Mushkin Cas 3 @ 133 MHz
Mushkin Cas 2 @ 133 MHz
