Radeon 9800pro w/ SAmsung memory

Post by Merlin » Mon Jun 21, 2004 3:58 pm

I saw a video card advertised that said it had samsung memory. Is that good or bad? I saw a review on Ram that Legit did earlier this year that tested several DIMMS from different manufacturers and the ones that had SAMSUNG IC's didn't perform well.

Samsung makes good graphics memory.

It's really hard to compare memory for video cards to memory for systems. Also it's a hit or miss thing. One IC can be great and the next the worst. Right now Samsung is being used on Corsair's XL memory line and it runs 2-2-2-5 timings! Sounds pretty good to me ;)
