    [SOLVED] Can a really bad Download/Upload speed affect latency (ping) ?

    What i've understood is that latency is the time it takes for a signal to travel from point A to point B and to come back from point B to point A. Download/Upload speed would be the amount of data that is Received or Sent in 1 "trip", so, in theory, they should be unrelated. My question is...

    [SOLVED] Can you use a male to male DIMM riser as a highspeed interconnect between computers in a cluster?

    Can you use a male to male DIMM riser as a high speed interconnect between computers in a cluster? You could get the lower latency than PCIe and a decent amount of bandwidth (according to kanewolf, latency is WAY more important than bandwidth). So would that work?
