DDR3-1333 vs DDR3-1600 vs DDR3-1866 Friday, January 13, 2012 3:12 PM (permalink)
What is the difference between:
 
8 GB DDR3-1333
8 GB DDR3-1600
8 GB DDR3-1866
 
Thanks

    memory speed (1333 mhz vs 1600 mhz vs 1866 mhz)
     
    it affects how quickly data can be stored and retrieved
     
    technically anything over 1600 is overclocked, and i usually dont recommend it since it can lead to more bluescreens

      Ok so generally speaking 1866 will be faster than 1600 and so forth.  How about getting something like Corsair Vengeance vs just Corsair?  Is there really a noticeable performance upgrade that would justify the increase in price?

        at the same speeds, they will be the same performance. If you want to get really technical about it, you should also look at the timings, but if the timings and the speeds are the same, the performance will be the same. the vast majority of ddr3 memory uses 9-9-9-24 timing, so just going by the speed is usually good enough.

        very technical, but in case you were wondering what the numbers mean
         
        the advantage of memory like corsair vengeance is that it will have gone through more rigorous quality control testing to insure that it can be overclocked. therefore it should theoretically be more reliable when at higher speeds.
