RDRAM vs. DDR RAM; Does it make a difference? - PCSTATS
The processor throws fits like a baby when there is not enough memory bandwidth, something which can often keep it from performing up to its potential.

Benchmarks: Sysmark 2002, Winstone 2001

SysMark2002 is more of an extension of SysMark2001 rather then a whole new benchmark. The applications used during testing have been updated and most importantly for AMD users, the new SysMark2002 uses the Windows Media Encoder 7.1 which supports the AthlonXP's SSE instructions.

Internet Content Sysmarks Ranking
1. 850Pro5 (RDRAM) 245
2. 845 Ultra (DDR) 234

Office Productivity

1 850Pro5 (RDRAM) 151
4. 845 Ultra (DDR) 148

Here the differences between the RDRAM and DDR RAM is very little. So little that a user wouldn't notice the differences anyway.

Winstone 2001 Source: Zdnet

Content Creation Winstone 2001 keeps multiple applications open at once and switches among those applications. Content Creation Winstone 2001's activities focus on what we call "hot spots," periods of activity that make your PC really work--the times where you're likely to see an hourglass or a progress bar.

Content Creation Scores Ranking
1. 850Pro5 (RDRAM) 72.6
2. 845 Ultra (DDR) 71.4

Since Content Creation 2001 is an office based benchmark, it acts a lot like SysMark2002 and can't really differentiate between the two systems.
