Thread: ram latency...?

  1. #1
    Question ram latency...?
    Hi, i'm looking into more ram for my 1.33 GHz powerbook... i'm a little confused about the 'latency' number i see for ram. does it matter what latency my ram has, will there be a performance difference between higher and lower, etc.?

    I don't know how it works on a Mac but if you stick lower latency ram in a system that isn't setup to use it, it won't help at all. On a PC you can set the ram timing in the bios, I don't know enough about macs to know how to adjust for the lower ram latency. I would just stick with what Apple says to get.

    Go to Crucial to find out what type of memory you need. After that you can purchase from what ever vendor you chose.
