ram issue?

Hi there I have a y570, 6gb of ram. The ram is advertized as ddr3 1333, but Spceey is reporting t he speed at around 665. There seems to be no spot in the bios to change or tweak this. Any suggestions?

 

thanks

Re: ram issue?

You can look at this article about DDR3 and its properties in wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR3_SDRAM

To cut the long story short, ddr3-1333 can perform 1333 megatransfers per second using 666MHZ bus clock, so what you see in your program is absolutely normal.

Re: ram issue?

thanks so much, I always found the clock cycles confusing.
