AM2: AMD Reinvents Itself

Automatically Overclocking SLI Memory, Continued

If the multiplier is changed to 12, the CPU is overclocked to 3 GHz, which results in an appropriate memory divider. The memory thus gains considerably in performance - at 508 MHz, it nearly reaches DDR2 1066.

When overclocking the CPU to 3 GHz, it's a similar picture: a multiplier of 12 and an HTT speed of 254 MHz gives the CPU a clock speed of 3 GHz.

Through the better choice of memory speed divider, the memory clock increases to 508 MHz (DDR2 1016) in this case.

This is also reflected in the benchmarks. For instance, the memory in the Copy benchmark from Everest attains a record high of 10.3 GB/s.

A record value of 10.3 GB/s in the Copy benchmark from Everest.

For those who want to overclock, there are speed advantages to be found here. In addition, everything can be done through a single BIOS setting, and stable operation is guaranteed. It's still not known, however, what these memory modules will cost.

What is unclear is why Nvidia decided on the name "SLI memory", since the function has nothing to do with SLI. The name "EPP" is far more appropriate.
