Now I see the benefits of DDR2 :eek: PC8000!!! Rated for 5-4-4-9

Nice article. Wonder who will be the first to make an AMD mobo for this?

not bad stuff :)
good read, thx jak

Serious question. Since Athlon 64 has never been real dependent on memory bandwidth, and I believe benches have proven that, then how is this supposed to help system performance much there? Maybe moreso with a P4 but I'm kinda scratching my head about why we should be getting real excited about this, at least ATM. Maybe down the road it will come in handy but it seems kind of unneeded right now.

well this is OCers RAM, Intel hasnt released any 1ghz FSB CPUs yet right?
Not a very wide market...

AMD is planning DDR2 support.. If this roadmap is right, by 2006 with Socket M2.

CAS5 ?

Wouldn't that suck for an Athlon64 system? I thought they love low CAS memory :confused:

Intel has 1066GHz FSB chips.

so they got them out now do they? not really kept myself up to date on the Intel side of things.. hehe.
well then the RAM is for anyone who needs it then.. hehe.

less then ideal yeah..
AMD doesnt depend on latancy totally tho, but high latancy sortof negates the gains from the integrated memory controller (I think..)
I spose thats why they arent rushing for DDR2 support, rather wait for latancies to come down a bit, and clockfrequencies (&bandwidth) to scale up some..
and hopefully prices to drop a bit hehe.

According to that road map, they are going to go with DDR2 667 in 2006 it seems, perhaps they are counting on lower latancies at that speed by then.
As opposed to jumping onto for example these very high latancy 1ghz DDR2 memories..

they kinda have to wait until the chips will support it....considering the AMD64 memory controller is on the CPU and not part of the motherboard....

Yup! It also has 2mb of L2 cache which makes it the fastest processor on the planet! Faster than any processor that will ever come out in the next 2 years!!! :p

Wouldn't mind winning the AREA-51 machine that Alienware is giving away in the BF2 contest. Has DDR2 and pentium processor @3.73 Ghz.
