Latency Settings and their Impact on Memory Performance

Straight from Corsair

"Memory modules are currently available which support a wide variety of different speeds and latency settings. Speed is easy to understand - in general, faster is better. But what do the latency settings mean? And, what impact do they have on memory performance? This paper will provide a brief background on latency settings and what they mean. Then, we will move to the lab, where we will run a suite of benchmarks over a wide variety of latency settings, and we will measure the impact of these settings on benchmark scores. "

I'm in total agreement - however, the performance gain versus cost (i.e. 100% in cost increase versus say 10 or even 20% gain in performance) makes it difficult for ordinary users to apprehend.

Besides, what good is a super sports car if there is not enough road for it to exercise the muscle.

If would be the same comparing ECC versus Non-ECC.

My bad 2 cents.
