The helpful hardware man, Johan of Ace's Hardware, has reviewed DDR SDRAM using Pentium IIIs and motherboards from Micron based on their Samurai chipset. As expected, the Pentium III, with its slower bus design, just can't take advantage of faster memory like the Athlon can.
This article is worth reading if you want to know where memory is going, regardless. Johan used PC2100 memory for his tests, which is even faster than the PC1600 stuff Anand used. Plus, there are a lot of good tech bits in there, like the one about Micron licensing the Samurai design to Via, or the one about future plans for a DDR-II memory spec, or...
Aw, heck, just go read it.
