Memory bandwidth (speed)


Dodger7

Recommended Posts

I have just purchased a second pair of Corsair Twinx memory modules ( 1GB DDR XMS3200C2PT 2x 512). They are running in dual channel mode but when I test the memory bandwidth in SiSoftware Sandra it is showing a decrease in speed of about 25%. Compared to just the one pair running.

I have also noticed that the memory configuration appears to be different, one pair of modules is 8x(64mx8) while the other is 16x(32mx8), could this cause a problem?

:confused:

This is comon, there is more loading on the memory controller and the system will by default slow the memory down if you add 4 modules verses 2. Also as long as the system is stable I would not worry about it.
