Kingston HyperX 2GB PC2-6400 C4 Memory ReviewFri, Jun 30, 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 Super Talent 2GB PC2-6400 memory kit came in third place behind the Corsair C3 and Crucial C4 parts.
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 4M 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. The Super Talent modules that we are testing today finished right in the middle of the pack. Thanks to their 4-4-3-8 timings they were able to beat out the Crucial Ballistix modules with their 4-4-4-12 timings.
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. The Super Talent memory kit scored a respectable 132.7 frames per second beating out the Corsair C5 and Crucial C4 parts.
