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.

Super Talent Sciencemark Results

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.

Super Talent Memory Review

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.

DOOM 3:

Super Talent Memory Review

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.
