    Hmm.. this seems to be the best place to put this. I always thought RDRAM to be on the slower side, between SDRAM and DDR SDRAM. Well, was fooling aroudn with this ID program AIDA 32, very good program if I may add, and it has some memory benches so I ran them, and the following is what I got. Is this accurate? Because it seems that my RAM is pretty fast, comparable to PC2700. And if mine is that, what is 32-bit PC1066 RDRAM at? THought it was interesting so I thought I'd share.

    EDIT: top is memory write, bottom is memory read

    Its not to bad in the bandwidth department (PC1024 is better again) but the latency factor is very high.
