Recent PC games are not very sensitive to the memory subsystem performance while the classic games Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament 2004 show their preferences more clearly. So, memory clocked at 450-500MHz and working at the minimal timings is the best choice for playing games. The alternative is to use memory capable of working at 600-650MHz with Command Rate = 1T. DDR700 requires setting the Command Rate to 2T and is not the best choice for games.

Although high memory frequency is most important in media encoding tasks, DDR700 SDRAM doesn’t perform brilliantly even here.

We conclude this test session with WinRAR, an application highly sensitive to the memory subsystem parameters. The DDR700 SDRAM is the worst memory type here, dispelling the last doubts among the jury about it.
