Performance DRAM such as our Vengeance and Platinum series can be found at rated speeds of up to 4333MHz. However, you might notice that when you first install your RAM and boot to your system’s BIOS, the RAM is running at its standard speed (2133MHz/2400MHz in the case of DDR4 memory). Why does memory initially run at this slower speed?
We've spent the last year refocusing our SSD lineup into a formidable series of drives, and as we'll show you, they're more than fast enough to compete.
Is DDR4's raw bandwidth enough to make up for its higher rated latency over DDR3? As our testing turns out, it doesn't need to.
