DDR3 memory - is it PC3-8500 or PC3-8533?

I've seen DDR3 memory modules referred to both with the speed rounded to a multiple of 100 (as it is on earlier memory types) and with the "raw" speed quoted.

Currently, spdmem(4) has a special case for DDR3 which prevents the rounding; I propose that, even though there's commercial references in both formats, we should round just for consistency with other memory technologies.

Any objections against removing the special no-rounding-DDR3 case?
