Why is this RAM module 1066 MT/s when my existing RAM is 1067 MHz?

Good question! The actual speed is 1066.66 MT/s but in the RAM industry manufacturers round this figure down to 1066. On MacOS however, this number is rounded up so that it shows 1067.

Why is the speed of this RAM module shown as 1066 MT/s instead of 1066 Mhz?

When it comes to measuring DDR RAM speed, MT/s and MHz are used interchangeably, which is not actually correct.

DDR stands for double data rate which means data is transfers on both the rising and falling edges of the clock signal. Meaning that the transfer rate is roughly twice the speed of the I/O bus clock. This RAM module runs at 533MHz per second, but the effective rate is 1066 megatransfers per second (MT/s) because there are 533 million rising edges per second and 533 million falling edges per second of a clock signal running at 533 MHz.
