However, the results of synthetic benchmarks should not be basis for conclusions; let’s check out the results in real applications before jumping to them:

Unfortunately, just like in DDR3-1333 SDRAM tests, we have to state that fast memory is often not enough to speed up the entire system. Nevertheless, there also exist opposite examples, for example, multi-threaded load created by CustomPC Benchmark. The performance difference here between slow DDR2-800 and fast DDR3-1600 reaches the impressive 22%. However, DDR2-1067 SDRAM falls just a little behind DDR3-1600: the fastest DDR3 memory can get 5% faster at best.
