can "regular DDR" be dual channel ram?
Ive been wondering if the newest Ram channel technology known as Dual channel DDR is requiring a new kind of ram or if my old ram will perform under this as well..
I mean, it would make sense that companies are selling those dual channel ddr packs for more money just because it says "dual channel ddr" on it.
ill have 2 sticks of 512 PC2700 on my 8rda+ [nforce2]

Are they matching pairs? Same manufacturer and model?

same manufacturer, but one is pc3200, the other pc2700, but both will be clocked at pc2700. mushkin sticks.
i would imagine that because you asked that, then yes, it is possible...
how much of a speed difference is there on MB/s? percentage wise?

Paired mem is nothing. Its the same as if you pick two = sticks of ddr. THats all they are doing. Its peace of mind for the newbie-thats all.R.I.P. TKOP

It's more of a marketing trick than anything else. Companies can jack prices up by making stuff like this.
