BX Boards has turned its screwdrivers on PC133 memory. With its usual thoroughness, the British-based hardware review site puts modules from Samsung, Enhanced Memory Systems, Crucial and Corsair through their paces. And the conclusions? Don’t throw away PC100, just for the sake of it. But if you’re in the market for new memory, buy PC133. This offers future proofing and "awesome stability" Finally, reviewer Andy Drake advises: "shop around and go for whatever is cheapest!" "Normally in a round-up such as this," he says, "I would be looking to make a buying recommendation. However these modules are hard to separate -- benchmarking the modules showed they all performed identically -- no surprise really -- and stability at 133Mhz was 100 per cent with all modules too." For the review in full, check out BX Boards here.
