    DDR vs DDR2

    Is DDR2 performing (significantly) faster than DDR yet? I'm thinking about Socket M2 and another system overhaul. Only places i've found that have comparisons seem to date back to 2004

    Significant in what manner?

    In terms of noticable difference, no way.

    Too hard to get a comparison anyway, as it's hard to find a modern system that takes both. We've got intel on DDR2, and AMD on DDR - the differences between them are accounted for by more than just the memory!

    As far as M2.. we'll have to wait and see - but my guess would be again it's not going to be the memory that makes the most difference.
