Why is that the write speed of DDR SDRAM are faster than the DDR2

these are tradeoff between DDR2 (for higher speed, but higher read
latencies) vs DDR (lower speed + read latencies).

so if u make the bus speed the same for both, then DDR2's higher latencies
will make it slower than DDR.


and a technical comparison charts in numbers:
