Super PI is a computer program that calculates pi to a specified number of digits after the decimal point – up to a maximum of 32 million.

From the looks of things the lower timings of the PNY memory kit aren’t helping us much here. Most of this 1M test fits inside the massive cache of the processor so it doesn’t need to involve the main memory.


WinRAR has a multithreaded version of the RAR compression algorithm, which improves the compression speed on computers with several CPU, dual core CPU and processors with hyperthreading technology. Multithreading is enabled by default, but you can disable it in “General” part of “Settings” dialog.

In WinRAR we see a small bit of seperation with the more agressive 3-4-4-8 timings of the PNY XLR8 memory. Nothing earth shattering, but there is a measurable difference.

Battlefield 2142:

The year is 2142 and the dawn of a new Ice age has thrown the world into a panic. The soil not covered by ice can only feed a fraction of the Earth’s population. The math is simple and brutal: some will live, most will die.

In Battlefield 2142 the enhanced timings allow us to reach the frame rate cap the game has imposed of 100fps. Again this isn’t much but it’s hard to say what we may not be seeing since it can be drawn any faster.
