LGA 1366 vs. 1156 comparison tests



Review: Socket 1366 is obsolete

This article is also available in German.

During our Mushkin 6GB Kit review, we thought about what happens if you use only two modules and how fast are all the settings compared to the 1156 platform.

So, we used the same modules with the same timings on the 1366 and 1156 platforms. We tested two channels vs three channels and compared that to the 1156 platform.
