Using Tight Memory Timings as opposed to High Memory Frequencies

Tom's Hardware has an interesting set of benches evaluating the performance of memory when configured for tight timings versus high bus speeds. Tom's results were......well, inconclusive.

Anyone got any thoughts about this?

I always thought that P4 based systems benefitted from higher memory clock speeds, as opposed to lower latiency, and A64 systems where the other way around. I don't know if that still holds true, though.

It's not as clean cut as that. It all depends on the app in quest to be honest.

Well I used SANDRA memory benchmark and watched the total Mb transfer rate. I think that they are as important as each other, go as high with one and as low as you can with the other I've got a transfer rate of around 6958 or so.

Yup - as with anything on a computer, it depends on the application mix you run.
