Ganged or Unganged - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Ultimately since nobody can give you a straight answer, benchmark in both modes wink.gif

Ganged is generally useful for chucking in mixed amounts of memory but still being able to take advantage of the extra 64 bits worth of bus space. Also, if you have an application which has huge memory requirements you might get a bit of better performance using Ganged. This is due to the fact the entire memory capacity is on a "128 bit" bus. With Unganged, there is the potential for more than half of the memory the application is utilizing to remain on one channel, therefore reducing the available bandwidth by a significant amount as the majority of the time only one of the 64 bit paths will be utilized.
