AvP & Hyper PI
Aliens vs. Predator
Aliens vs Predator D3D11 Benchmark v1.03 is a standalone benchmark test based upon Rebellion's 2010 inter-species shooter Aliens vs. Predator. The test shows xenomorph-tastic scenes using heavy tessellation among other DX11 features. We set the image quality settings in the benchmark to low and ran 1920x1080 and 1366x768 on both kits of memory in the ASUS N56VM notebook.
As you can see the performance gains in 3DMark 11 are also seen in real game titles. We saw a nice 45% performance improvement in AvP at 1366x768, which is a popular notebook resolution. Getting around a 50% performance increase in gaming performance is awesome and where this kit really shines.
Hyper Pi 0.99B
Hyper Pi is a front end mod for Super Pi. Hyper Pi allows you to run multiple instances of Super Pi automatically without manually setting processor affinity. Super Pi is a utility that allows you to calculate between 16 thousand and 32 million decimal places of Pi. Pi was originally calculated to 33.5 million places using a Pentium 90MHz processor, 40MB of main memory, and 340MB of available storage. This system was able to calculate the 33.5 million digits within 3 days! Fortunately we are able to do it a little bit quicker today.
The Corsair kit managed to trim off more than a full second off our stock Pi benchmark run to a million places! This is just shy of a 10% performance improvement, so another solid performance gain from just upgrading your memory kit!
