Say, compared to well-known manufacturers like OCZ, Corsair, G.Skill, does 'less-wellknown' manufacturers' memory are slower in the same PC?
Does my memory A-Data Vitesta Extreme Ed. :
-4 GB with timings 4-4-4-12
-Voltage 1.9 ~ 2.0 V
Will perform less than, say, a Corsair Dominator 4 GB 4-4-4-12 same voltage? Will a higher memory brand affect better performance despite same capacity, timings, and voltage? Assume the other components are the same, and set to 1:1 ratio.
(Note there is this unseen number Command Rate and another 'hidden' number after '-12..' part that usually comes in 23 or 42, or something else. I question if these numbers, or anything else, are the hidden factors)
Brands doesn't matter, maybe Corsair have better reviews than A-Data but it doesn't mean that if both have the exact same specs,then the Corsair one will perform better.
As long as the specs are the same,the performance will be the same too.
I've been hearing alot of negative comments with OCZ memory lately, and while I hadn't used OCZ memory since ddr1, it worked like a charm. So what is the reason for all the negative comments toward OCZ? I've also used corsair and I've heard positive things for Muskin as well as Gskill.
