Corsair 2GB PC2-6400 C3 DDR2 Memory ReviewMon, Jul 17, 2006 - 12:00 AM
Sciencemark, Super Pi & DOOM 3
ScienceMark 2.0 Final:
Science Mark 2.0 is an attempt to put the truth behind benchmarking. In an attempt to model real world demands and performance, ScienceMark 2.0 is a suite of high-performance benchmarks that realistically stress system performance without architectural bias. All of our testing was completed on the 32 Bit Final benchmark version that is dated March 21st 2005.
Results: In Sciencemark 2 the Corsair 2GB PC2-6400C3 memory kit came in first place yet again!
Super PI Mod v1.4:
Super PI is a program a lot of enthusiasts use to benchmark overall system performance, as the program is capable of calculating pi up to 33.55 million digits on a timer. Many overclockers and enthusiasts are in a battle to get the lowest 1M Super Pi time possible.
Results: Super Pi Mod v1.4 shows improved performance when the timings get tigher. The original PC2-6400 modules from Corsair were rated at 5-5-5-12 and came in 2 seconds slower as a result. Thanks to the super tight 3-4-3-9-2T timings they were able to beat out all of the other modules tested.
Results: When it comes to memory timings nothing loves to show performance differences like some first person shooters. Doom 3 is a great benchmark to use as their usually is not a load on either the GPU or CPU, so memory timings play an important role. For this benchmark we ran a clean install of Doom 3 and didn’t edit any of the graphics settings. Here we see why gamers love low latency memory. Moving from a CAS Latency of 5 to 3 resulted in an additional nine frames per second during benchmarking, which is a significant difference.
