4x512 low latency or 2x1 Tags: Memory Latency Performance Product Last response: February 10, 2007 12:10 AM in Memory Share jjknoll February 9, 2007 4:52:20 PM which of the two are better performance wise? Does it take a hit moving out to 4 sticks? I think the price is slightly better with the 4x512. It's definately better than trying to get 2 sticks of low latency 1g. Thanks for all constructive replies.
