Corsair XMS PC-4400 MemoryFri, Apr 09, 2004 - 9:00 AM
Our Test System:
- Intel Pentium 4 3.2C 800MHz FSB (Intel ES unlocked Sample)
- Asus P4C800-E Deluxe Canterwood Motherboard
- nVidia 5900 Ultra 256mb (nVidia refference)
- Corsair HydroCool 200ex (Water Cooled CPU/Northbridge)
- Seagate 120Gb Serial ATA 150 Hard drive
- Antec True Power 430W Power Supply
- 17" Sony Trinitron monitor
- Intel Chipset Software Utility 5.00.1012
- Asus BIOS version 1016
All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows XP Professional build 2600 with Service Pack 1A and DirectX 9.0b. All benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. No overclocking was done on the video card unless noted. Our testing processor was an unlocked Intel Pentium 4 3.2C. Our testing was done at:
- DDR 550: 275×12 = 3.3GHz with H/T enabled.
- DDR 533: 266×12 = 3.2GHz with H/T enabled
- DDR 500: 250×13 = 3.3GHz with H/T enabled
The audio, USB, Firewire, and lan features were disabled in the BIOS menu for all the testing competed during this review. All memory was set at 3-4-4-8, 1T timings.
All testing was completed at 2.85Vdimm unless otherwise noted!
Sisoft; Sandra 2004:
Sisoft Sandra 2004 is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are, again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance. Higher numbers represent better performance in memory bandwidth.
XMS 4400 performed very nicley on Sandra 2004 and showed some memory muscle with it’s high speeds. With our memory running at DDR550 we have finally been able to break the 6,000+ MB/Sec barrier. That is a ton of data moving very quickly!
