    technically hes right, to a certain extent.

    there is only a small difference between 1333mhz and 1600mhz. with timings that high, especially @ CL11, will negate most of that speed advantage. I would recommend the 1333mhz memory simply because you wont see the difference unless your benchmarking.

    LOL....Well I didn't call him stupid. I asked him if he was stupid and blind because you would have to be blind to not notice the cheap price and stupid you post "nothing to see here"...

    Just my take on it..

    P.S: I really hate stupid people. It is my biggest pet-peave of anything in life...

    Is someone who doesn't agree with you/have a similar view to you "stupid" then? :3eyes:

    I remember reading, that they are mostly made for APU cpu´s.

    They shouldnt have any issues at all on working on APU´s.

    2GB DDR3-1600 1.5v 11-11-11 timings really is a fail. There is no excuse for those timings.

    ... or the 1600 MHz kind if you're overclocking a CPU that support only up to 1333 MHz memory. ;)

    I say it's a good move on AMD's part. It might be value memory, but for people who buy pre-built rigs, it could mean more money towards AMD's pockets, which isn't a bad thing at all.

    Bring on the DDR5 RAM! or...use the GPU memory as system RAM. Now that would be innovation.

    I think you meant 1600-c9 will perform no better than 1600-c11.


    On sandy bridge, atleast, memory timings don't mean much, it's all memory frequency.

    DDR4 is on its way; I read about it like... five or six months ago.



    Hasn't it pretty much always been that way? I mean, I remember having read the same thing (i.e. frequencies over timings) about Core 2 CPUs and Pentium 4s as well (though I could be wrong about the latter).

    Before the core 2 architecture and even during, especially with amd based systems latency was as important if not more so with lower clock memory chips. Though with core 2 it started to shift more towards memory frequency and high bandwidth, with sandy bridge that trend just got a lot more evident as going from cl 11 to cl 7 on a 1600 mhz ddr3 chips wil probably make minimal difference.

    I haven't got my cl7 memory chips in my computer atm but I could have done a quick comparison.

    Phenom II doesn't care for timings over frequency either. You'll always get better benchies with higher frequencies.

    memory timings affects performance? really?

    So much hate over timings? Give me a chart proofing that higher timings DDR3 will drastically affect FPS in games or whatever.

    It's not DDR2 with north bridge fsb...
    and damn... so much obsession with timings...

    I'm curious to see how AMD fairs in this market, personally i think it is a good move for AMD,

    it all depends on how they fair. but so long as AMD keeps their core values on what we see from them currently, i might grab some for my self.

    The memory is about $10-$20. Can't complain too much there. This isn't memory made for overclocking or high performance now. :D

    I downgraded from 1600mhz CL8 to 1333 CL9. Haven't noticed that it is slower.
    Memory speed doesn't really do a lot on the motherboard, it's not like memory speed on graphic cards. It's more important to have a lot of it...

    Drop those DDR3-1600 CL11 timings to CL8 and then we'll talk AMD.

    However, DDR3-1333 CL9 is amazing at $10 ... that's $10 f**kin' dollars, that's dirt cheap!

    Don't look the timings, thoses DDR are release for APU, where stability is a big concern . (or it corrupt graphics )

    Thoses timings are the exact DDR3 timings rated by Jedec for 1.5V.
    All brand have thoses type of Standard DDR3... It's us who don't use standard DDR3 .. we use pre overclocked and tighten timings DDR kits.

    1.65V for 6-8-6-6 1T for my Mushkin, are all but not standard.

    AMD don't release thoses ram for enter enthusiast DDR market vs Corsair, G-Skill etc... they just want to provide, certified DDR kits 100% error free ( this is not the case of our ram at all . but for the system it's not important, for the gpu it is. )

    All producteed chips RAM are like that
    Samsung

    Micron:

    Elpida:
    http://www.elpida.com/en/products/ddr3module.html

    etc...

    It's entreprise as Corsair- G-skill who take thoses chips, and set timings and speed as they want .

    i dont know but naming them radeon and giving them such poor performance... they should just be named AMD or have invented another name with amd by its side. this memory gives a bad reputation to the radeon brand. IMO

    Lane actually said something that makes sense, thank you.
