* DDR2 vs DDR and Latency

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
X-Bit Labs have an analysis of DDR2 vs DDR on the latency side, formerly a great concern for those who were trying that upgrade path.

The verdict? Some companies are finally solving DDR2's latency issues and it's becoming worthwhile.

Intel and the numerous manufacturers of mainboards and graphics cards are overall putting much effort into pushing the users towards the new platform. Particularly, all new and speedy Pentium 4 models are announced for the LGA775 platform only, and the graphics card makers are also releasing new products in the PCI Express x16 variant. Yet, these two arguments are not enough to win the hearts of the users. Many applications demand a high memory performance, and DDR2 SDRAM employed in LGA775 platform just couldn?t provide it.

It couldn?t but it can now! We?ve been scolding DDR2 SDRAM for being slower than ordinary DDR memory, but this article is going to show you that DDR2 SDRAM can be faster than its predecessor!
