Memory and cpu frequency Tags: CPUs Memory Last response: June 29, 2009 1:36 PM in CPUs Share auric June 29, 2009 11:34:07 AM Is there any additional advantage to having the cpu and memory in tandem--i.e. a cpu clocked at 2ghz and a memory stick at 2ghz? I think I fail to understand the meaning of memory clock speed. Since most memory frequency is lower than cpu frequency, isn't memory always slowing the CPU down? Presumably I have the wrong idea.

I suggest you should start with the basics because seems like there many things that you don't know. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
