Here at Puget Systems, we have tried to be careful about sticking to CPU manufacturer memory specifications – to ensure the best reliability, and to avoid overclocking memory controllers (which could, technically, violate CPU warranties). But increasingly complicated memory speed support schemes on many newer processors, combined with a lack of supply of certain speed modules, has forced us to adopt a new approach to what we offer in our workstations.
New Technology – ATA133 and DDR333 – Performance or Hype?
It is always going to be expensive to be on the cutting edge when you purchase new hardware. Is this extra cost worth the performance gain? When new technology is released, it is important to take an objective look at how the new technology compares to its predecessors. In this article, we take a look at the new features of the KT333 motherboards — ATA133 and DDR333, and separate the true performance from the hype.
