Since the release of motherboards supporting DDR3, including memory at speeds above the “default” 1333MHz, the major memory manufacturers have been quickly pushing the specifications of their modules higher and higher. Faster speeds are always a good thing as far as PC components are concerned, unfortunately there is usually a premium attached to the components when buying the latest and greatest.
Today we are taking a look at just how much performance can be gained by using DDR3-1800Mhz when compared with DDR3-1333Mhz and we will discuss whether the increase in performance is worth the price being charged for the higher performance modules. We will also take a look at how much of an increase can be gained by using DDR3-1333 over a decent kit of DDR2-1066 modules.
