    I don't know much about it, but it provides higher clocks and more bandwidth. :2cents:

    Basically what DDRII will offer over DDR.
    1/Performance/Bandwidth Improvements
    2/Cost Improvements
    3/Power Reduction Improvements

    Die shrink, .11 micron vs .18 micron or so.

    Allows higher clocks at lower volts, and higher density (can pack in more memory in the same size chip).

    DDR2 boards are coming in April....so I would hope memory makers have stuff ready by then.

    Wow, thx alot for the info. Seems that there's going to be quite the little revolution in computing by May, among PCI-Express, DDR2, BTX, and 64-bit Windows coming out. Anyways, thx again, : peace2: Mista K6

    hold on, now I have another question...every single thread i've read that brings up the debate of buying a 128MB card vs a 256MB card, someone chimes in that the memory on the 256 meg card is slower and doesn't perform as well as the 128 memory, do these people have any facts to back it up or are they just saying stuff that their dad's friend's buddy who knows someone at Best Buy said?
