Default pc6400 vs pc8500 - non gaming related

I know, do a search.
I did, but didn't really find an answer (maybe I should have looked harder).

What will be faster for stuff like file extracting (and the likes) and video encoding or decoding or whatever - just not gaming related?


4X1 pc6400 or 2X2 pc8500? And by how much?

8500 will allow you a higher cpu oc with 1:1 ratio

I don't think memory alone will make more than 2 seconds difference ,
But its all really cheap now so you might as well buy some 8000/8500

Your looking for cpu power I dont think those 2 types of memory will have an adverse effect on extracting. As stated above the 8500 will help with over clocking and give you more power to calculate.

So what are the benefits of pc8500 memory over pc6400 - besides OC?

somewhat faster response in memory intensive aspects.

Only useful in intensive processor <-> memory related functions.

High speed gaming,
video processing
photoshop

In generic day-2-day, you wont notice much.

It will show up in the benchmarks, but the question is: how do you use your system?

There are a lot of factors involved.

The PC8500 only becomes a factor if you set your systems memory speeds over 800mhz. If you're going to put PC8500 in a system and run it at the same Mhz as the 6400 the only difference in speed will depend on the memory's timing.... 4-4-4-12 PC6400 @ 800MHz will be faster than 5-5-5-15 8500 @ 800 MHz although there wont likely be enough of a difference to notice.

In reality, unless you're doing some very large and time consuming activities that involve processing huge amounts of data, the difference between the two would likely be negligible.
