Default difference in chips for RAM - 11-20-2009, 08:50 PM

I was looking at getting some Super Talent RAM for my Dell Mini 10v, and I saw that on there's 6 different selections for Super Talent DDR2-667 SODIMM RAM (link here: - SODIMM DDR 200 Pins). Each of the different selections has a different chip according to the title, and there's a price difference of up to $6.00.

So is there really any difference between the Value, Micron, Hynix, or Samsung based RAM sticks?

I was wondering the same thing since the bus speed is either limited to 533 or 667 dependant on the N Atom processor in our Minis.

How much difference does latency play here? I was thinking of replacing my memory with Kingston Hyper X ram like the kind I put in my Mac Mini

I am too, but I wouldn't say it's any faster in real-world use over any other RAM out there. The Atom processor is too slow to take advantage of the faster timings.

Just get whatever name brand is on sale.

Another Kingston Hyper X user here!

As has already said, it probably doesn't make any 'real world' difference, but we all like to think our Mini's perform better because of it.... a bit like putting 'go faster' stripes on a car I suppose!
