Why is my RAM speed shown different by different software?

Speccy shows my single channel DDR3 4GB RAM speed to be 665MHz while Intel desktop utilities shows it to be 1333MHz? How can I know which is true ?

    I couldn't disagree more.

      Then what do you think, Tebawiha?

    Both are same..You must consider your number of rams too..

    speccy shows the real clock speed of your RAM (667Mhz). Since it's double data rate (DDR) RAM however the effective clock speed would be 1333Mhz (667x2). Real speed = 667Mhz & effective speed 1333Mhz.

    Both are correct. Its running at 665MHz but since its double density ram 2 x 665 = 1333MHz
