[Frontpage News]Patriot DDR2 Overclocking Roundup

Patriot DDR2 Overclocking Roundup

We have posted up a three way shootout with some Patriot memory kits.  We've got two DDR2-800 kits and a DDR2-1066 kit on the bench and find the maximum performance on each kit.  We tested all three kits at different latencies to find out which one is the best value.  All three kits perform well, but one stands out as the winner - you may be surprised, so take a look.

As you can see from the results above, memory performance on today's Intel Core 2 Duo systems has more to do with CPU speed than actual memory speed.  When three different sets of Patriot memory are compared, all three produce similar results.  The kit that impressed me the most though was the "cheapy" DDR2-800 "Eased Latency" kit.  This kit ran at CAS3 at an amazing DDR2-879 when it comes clocked in at 5-5-5-12!

Please post your feedback on this memory review right here!
