DDR2 speed

By rszanti

  1. I just ran CPU-Z to find what chipset I had. Got what I wanted but I was surprised to see my "DRAM frequency" was listed as 266MHz. My machine supposedly has DDR2 SDRAM running at 533MHz - does the 266MHz translate to 533MHz because of the "2" in DDR2 ? or was I cheated by my computer vendor ?

    I ran Everest (nice program) and it shows actual clock speed as 266MHz but "effective" speed as 566MHz. Guess I got what I paid for :approve: ?

    I've stopped by before, looking for answers to other problems. But finally joined as I've seen some intelligent help being given - not always easy to find :D
