Hi,

Just looking for a little help on understanding tRAS settings. I found this
article
http://www.mushkin.com/mushkin/pop-up/latencies.htm

that states

Any tRAS setting lower tRCD + CAS + 2 cycles will allow the memory
controller to close the page “in your face!” over and again and that will
cause a performance hit because of a truncated transfer that needs to be
repeated.........................

After reading numerous posts I don't find many people following these
recommendations. Has anyone tested tRAS setting changes alone on there
system and could confirm whether or not this is a good rule of thumb?

Thanks in advance
John
