    in theory ( or in my theory anyway) 2 x 128 ddr sdram in dual channel made would be as good as 1 x 512 sdram........right or wrong and why? :group:
    Hope this helps

    Well no. 512mb of ram is better than 256mb. If you were to compare 1x512 to 2x256 in dual channel. Then the 2x256 would be about 5-10% better. That's about all the increase that benchmarks show. Or if you are talking about the 512mb not being DDR:confused: then yes. That also can depend on board and cpu. Some Intel boards with pc133 bench better than some DDR systems.

    Just so no one thinks Iím crazy. Hereís a shot of the ranking in Sandraís cache and memory bench. I know itís not a real good example so take it as you will and, Iím just going to be quite now.

    and 2 x 128 ddr sdram

    but i'll take the blame for not saying pc 133 sdram-----cas 2-----non ecc------unbuffered.

    jeez can't anyone read .

    Sorry about that. Started to respond then realized I might be readin it wrong. : omg: It can still depend on the quality of the ram but IMO yes it would be better. Mainly due to the speed.

    Ok if I understand your question. The DDR is just faster, but it doesnít have the same capacity as the 512 SDRAM. Yes the pc133 wouldíve helped me at least. : peace:

    PC2100 (133MHz or 266DDR) has twice the usable bandwidth of PC133 (133MHz).

    the 'platinum' memory is DDR3200 (400mhz) which is faster than the non platinum memory which is DDR2700 (333mhz) the platinum also has heatspreaders attached to it

    the heat spreader is meant to spread the heat from the memory chips over a larger area so more heat will be transferred to the air this link should give you any information you want about them
    as for the platinum memory i think it is higher quality but im not sure
