Mushkin Ridgeback 4GB DDR3-1600 CL6
With Intel’s LGA1156 platform proving quite popular, it would appear that high performance for the masses is the goal, attempting to speed at a price that is palatable to the mainstream. The costs are certainly lower than its big brother LGA1366 socket, but there are a few performance differences as well; namely, the dual channel memory in the newer 1156 socket.
However, one of the primary reasons that LGA1156 exists is the reduced costs associated with the platform.
