Testing Memory Speeds on AMD’s A10-5800K Trinity APUMon, Dec 31, 2012 - 12:00 AM
3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world’s most popular benchmark for measuring the 3D graphics performance of gaming PCs. 3DMark 11 uses a native DirectX 11 engine designed to make extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11, including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading.
We ran Futuremark 3DMark11 with the default performance presets to see how our hardware will run.
Results: The overall 3DMark score increased as the memory clock increased, but not by as much as we thought it would. The overall score is heavily weighted on the GPU performance, so we also included the test results from the Physics test as that is a better look at CPU performance. The Physics test does a much better job at showing differences due to the memory changes we were making. As you can see from the chart above the 2133MHz memory kit showed an overall score of P1644, which was 19% faster than the 1333MHz memory kits score of P1382.
