MVKTech looks at the Gainward
Bliss 8600GTS 256MB GS Edition videocard. BIOSMagazine takes the Sony
VAIO VGC-RM1N notebook. Neoseeker has a DDR2
VS DDR3 comparison.
Basically, as a simple example, if you had DDR2-667 memory with 5-5-5-15
timing, that would have exactly the same latency as DDR3-1333 memory with 10-10-10-30
timing, as the latency clock cycles had to go up to compensate for the higher
transfer rates because there is no magic.
