amd phenom ii - ddr2 to ddr3   Get with the processor AMD Phenom II X4 810, which is designed to work with DDR3 memory and socket AM3, left a good impression. Good upper capacity, high performance on their prices and the ability to slowly transition c AM2 system for AM3 allow consideration of new 45-nm chips AMD as candidates for purchase. Today, thanks to the resource, we have an opportunity to get acquainted with the results of testing the processor AMD Phenom II X4 810 in conjunction with DDR2 and DDR3 memory on a motherboard. The market already pay for the AM3 processors with simultaneous support for memory DDR2/DDR3, one of them and benefited from our colleagues.
Motherboard Jetway MA3-79GDG COMBO is a kind of hybrid that combines the simultaneous support of memory DDR2/DDR3. It is clear that the user can first get the AM2 processor and the memory of DDR2, and then upgrade the processor to AM3 and then switch to DDR3. All in one card. As already mentioned above, took part in the testing processor Phenom II X4 810. Sets memory consisted of two slats to 2 GB of different types, DDR2-1200 and Gskill DDR3-1600 Corsair Dominator. Features of the memory were that type of DDR2 memory runs at 1066 MHz with 5-5-5-15 timing and DDR3 memory at a frequency of 1333 MHz with 9-9-9-24 timing. Testing was conducted in different applications, we will acquaint the reader with some of them, a complete overview in English can be found here.
Let`s start with the synthetics.
In the program EVEREST Ultimate Edition a clear leader becomes memory DDR3, both in the reading and write operations.
In a comprehensive package of PCMark Vantage advantage of DDR3 memory over DDR2 slightly, the difference is only 2, 7%.
When encoding the video in Adobe Premiere Elements 4. 0, both types of memory show almost equal results. Name 1% increase in the productivity advantage of DDR3 memory is not allowed.
As a shooter Crysis at high resolution, you`ll notice a difference in a couple of frames, which provides memory DDR3.
When buying a new system based on AMD platforms and support the memory type DDR3 user will receive a small increase compared to the type of memory DDR2. Very small, but it is. Of course, this memory will cost more than usual DDR2, but to develop the full potential, but rather to justify the move to AM3, it is necessary.
