Low Latency DDR3

The higher latency DDR3 at launch certainly gave the top DDR2 a run for the money, but it generally took much higher speeds to match or surpass current DDR2 with low latency timings. It was clear lower latency would bring DDR3 much improved performance and make it even more attractive to buyers, but we assumed it would likely be months until we saw lower latency DDR3 - as it was in the launch of DDR2.

With this scenario, imagine our surprise when Kingston asked us if we would like to review their first low-latency DDR3. Where the competition was 9-9-9 at DDR3-1333 and 7-7-7- at DDR3 1066, Kingston specified their new DDR3 memory at 7-7-7 at 1333 and 6-6-6 at 1066. These were definitely some memory sticks we wanted to review.

It still spells doom for AMD's IMC. I hope they stay with DDR2 for a while, since it seems to be mature enough.

You can't really tell yet, latencies for DDR3 don't mean the same as DDR2, since it does more per cycle the timings have different impacts. Could be better maybe worse for AMD, but no one really knows how it will work. Maybe they'll adapt the memory controller to this...
