summary and Conclusions
First, we see that the two memories reviewed here are designed for very powerful systems, since to use these memories a stable motherboard with high-speed capabilities is needed, since a standard board can not utilize the memories and most home systems can be satisfied with 667MHz memory, DDR-1333) which is significantly cheaper.
The memories we have examined are for hamburger enthusiasts with relatively expensive boards and X38 board holders and of course X48. Note that X48 board owners who wish to work with 1: 2 must actually use DDR-1600 memory, otherwise they will need to select larger partitions, which will not fully reflect the system's capabilities.
Regarding the level of performance, although the memories were tested over a wide range of speeds, the effect of memory speed on performance was in most cases negligible. In games tested, it can even be said that the differences are within the statistical error range and can be ignored. When it comes to overclocking, the motherboard we used limited us considerably and we were unable to bring the memories in question to their maximum possible speeds. But do not worry - we definitely intend to atone for this and will publish an update as soon as we receive modern X48 boards and examine the issue in depth.
But if it is implied from the above that investing in fast (terribly expensive memories - the price of the two sets of memories, both the ProjectX of Super Talent and the Xtreem of Team Group is in Israel over 2000 NIS, even if you manage to find Them in stores) is not recommended the answer is - not necessarily.For most systems, the added value of investing in such memory will not justify itself and it is better to save money or invest it in a faster processor or more powerful video card, but for powerful systems designed for speed, fast memories can give The freedom to increase the speed of the processor - which will result in a definite and tangible performance improvement - without the need to limit the memory speed by increasing the ratio of its divisors.
