Image Description

Testing Procedure:

All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows XP Professional build 2600 with Service Pack 2 and DirectX 9.0c. All benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. All of the modules were run in dual channel mode! The memory on the Intel and AMD AM2 test platforms was run with Corsair PC2-6400C3 memory running 4GB at 3-4-3-9 2T timings at 800MHz. The Intel quad-core system was run at 3-3-3-9 2T thanks to improved memory performance on Bad Axe 2. The memory on the AMD DDR1 motherboard was running 4GB at 400MHz with 2-3-2-6 1T timings.  The memory timings on both of the Quad FX system was set to 4-4-4-12 2T.
