Benchmarks: 333MHz Memory Performance




Bumping the FSB up from 266MHz to 333MHz allowed the Core 2 Duo E6700 to operate at 3.33GHz. Using a 2.5x multiplier the memory was now operating at 833MHz rather than 667MHz. In order to achieve this frequency the Value Select memory timings had to be increased to CAS5-5-5-15, whereas the 10th anniversary memory modules could handle CAS4-4-4-14.

Using a 3x multiplier the 10th anniversary memory was able to work at 1000MHz which only slightly improved the memory bandwidth of the Core 2 Duo system.
