That may not sound very remarkable, but remember how dissapointing DDR2 was at first?<br><br><a href="http://www.hkepc.com/bbs/itnews.php?tid=687974&starttime=0&endtime=0" target="_blank">http://www.hkepc.com/bbs/itnews.php?...me=0&endtime=0</a>

No it won't! <br />
<br />
In real life, you will never know/see the difference between nanoseconds, it's ridiculous. Just like the Raptor's seektime against a regular HDD, there's no difference, real that is. <br />
<br />
Nano second is one billionth of a second, so will anyone be really noticing 15ns and 11ns differences? I don't think so, DDR3 clearly it will be all about bandwidth

It most certainly will, especially when paired up with a quad core intel.<br><br>
You must realise that if you compare a loop that lakes 11ns to one that takes 15ns, one would complete a billion cycles in 11 seconds and the other would take 15

I don't think they're referring to cycles per second but billionths of a second, look at the chart and you'll see that it says 15nanoseconds and then 11.25nanosenconds, so 15 billionth of a second compared to 11.25 billionth of a second.

Well Nasgul, ur part right<br />
<br />
For example, RAID0 on my 2 Raptors loads/reads/opens alot faster than a regular HD<br />
<br />
But for the most part, ur right about not noticing on the nm thing

Well that adds up into seconds fast. Just bench at slightly different timings, scores will fluctuate.

That's the same thing as saying<br><br>
"Our memory is faster than their memory even with high latency"<br><br>
or<br><br>
"Buy our memory because we just said it's faster"<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

hm.. i want to see NCSAs timings on his DDR2-1066 (or w/e it is) running at his insano speeds. then we'll compare.

Things are getting so fast now that buying these items wont make a differnt' in what you do day to day. I mean who really NEEDS to say " yeah well i can rune super pi .3 second f aster becasue i have ddr3 and you don't <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick out tounge caps"> "In the end people with this ram will mearly just say they have such and such look at my bench scores. it wont make a differn't till vista were every byte of memory counts becasue its alwyas running in the background. And notice this is samsung saying this not really an outside sourse i could easily say my procesory beats chozarts. Sincei said it does it make it ture? naww its fancy charts with arrows and collors and we computer users love flashy shiny things with big * in this case low numbers*

Samsung isn't the only company to makes DDR3 last time I checked....so....it's not like it's their own perogative.<br><br>
Either way, it IS useful to US. We play games. a couple clocks of timing could mean 5 FPS in the newest game...and that's a lot when it's the last few. Every frame counts, and ram is a helper in that...<br><br>
EDIT: Oh, and repost. lol

do you really think that those few nano seconds get 5 more fps? hmm i still wouldn't drop the money on it which it most likey will be a pretty pennie<br><br>
EDIT: and why do the state that all those ddr2 rams mentioned all run at 15ms for either them. that doesnt' seem right

I dont' think you understand....<br><br>
Listen man....15 ns, over that many bytes of data, and all those searches and whatnot....that's not just 15ns...it turns into more.<br><br>
Either way....it's step in the right direction, seeing as DDR2 we went..BACKWARDS from DDR in terms of latency...
