Aliens vs. Predator

Aliens vs Predator D3D11 Benchmark v1.03

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 1920×1080 and 1366×768 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 1366×768, 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.

Hyper Pi

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!
