The DDR3 Test System

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 test platforms with DDR2 memory was run with Corsair PC2-6400C3 memory running 2GB at 3-4-3-9 2T timings at 800MHz except for the Intel quad-core system as it was run at 3-3-3-9. The memory timings on the Quad FX system were set to 4-4-4-12 and the V8 system was set to 5-5-5 at 667MHz. The DDR3 test system used Kingston HyperX PC3-11000 memory kit and was run at 1333MHz with 5-7-5-15 1T timings at 1.8 Volts.  The ASUS P5K3 motherboard was updated from BIOS version 0405 that was used in our last DDR3 article to BIOS version 0604 by using ASUS flash.  This BIOS update did impact the performance numbers, so if you own this motherboard you will want to update to the latest BIOS.
