More Speed = More Performance? Fast DDR Memory from TwinMOS and Buffalo Technology Put to the Test

Buffalo Technology DDR466/ PC3700

The memory chips used are from Winbond and offer short cycle times of just 5 ns.

Every label tells a story : 512 MB and maximum 466 MHz. Many manufacturers still fail to include any descriptive labeling whatsoever.

Buffalo Technology’s presence is largest in the U.S. The company sent us its top model for this test. Unfortunately, at all clock speeds it will run, at best, with CL 2.5 ; only at 266 MHz could a CAS latency of two clock cycles be run stably. The SPD gives the lowdown on it.
