AIDA32 is a professional system information, diagnostics and benchmarking program for Win32 platforms. It extracts details of all components of the PC. It also tests the actual read and write speeds of your memory giving a fairly accurate look of true memory performance.
AIDA32 3.90 shows HyperX pulling ahead of Corsair’s XMS PC-4400 at DDR533 in both the read and write tests. Although the gap is not large or significant by any means! It is still too close to call.
Using the full installation of Unreal Tournament 2003 along with the newest patch gives us a very nice real world benchmark! We also used [H]ardOCP’s UT2003 Benchmarking utility version 2.1. A resolution of 1024×768 was tested in Direct3D on the built-in benchmark was also used to see if any differences could be observed.
Of course we also used the built-in benchmark utility also!
By using the built-in benchmark utility that comes with the full retail game we can clearly see that both modules are nearly identical at 533MHz DDR!
