AM2 chipset to support 800 MHZ DDR2 Tags: CPUs DDR2 Memory Last response: February 15, 2006 10:31 PM in CPUs Share incinerator February 15, 2006 11:33:43 AM http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=29716 I wonder how much of a performance boost this will give them with their built in memory controller. Should be good stuff This is also good news for memory manufacturers as well because they will sell a bunch of high end ram. What is not so good is 800MHZ DDR2 costs more, but if its faster I'm in. -Incinerator- -A.K.A.

Craigmandu February 15, 2006 12:16:46 PM Ycon, That proves smart, at least in situations like Rambus etc.. Sometimes though, it seems like they "should" be rolling into something that they are "choosing" not to. Anyways, it'll be a moot point once AM2 comes out. 9-inch February 15, 2006 10:31:35 PM Incinarator: I'm sorry I've posted the same article. I apologize for not seing it before.
