We have already pointed out how efficient DDR3 SDRAM is in games in our previous DDR3-1600 memory review. Contemporary high-speed DDR3-1800 finds a good place in today’s gaming applications and ensures a noticeable performance boost. It means that the leading gaming fans shouldn’t pass by this new technology.
However, as we have already mentioned before, DDR3 SDRAM cannot yet compete with DDR2 SDRAM in non-overclocked systems because Intel P35 and X38 chipsets support maximum 1333MHz memory bus. Therefore, until CPUs with 400MHz FSB appear in the desktop segment and acquire official support for DDR3-1600, the users who prefer to refrain from overclocking their systems will hardly be able to benefit from the new DDR3 SDRAM.
