The Test System

Before we look at the numbers here is a brief glance at the test system that was used.

The Test System

All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit. All benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. All of the modules were run in dual channel mode with a 120mm fan placed on top of them to keep them cool. The XFX GeForce 8800 GTX used ForceWare 169.12 video card drivers and the ASUS P5E3 motherboard using BIOS version 0702, which was the most recent available when testing was done.

Memory Settings: (The Processor was set to 450MHz FSB x 8 Multiplier = 3.6GHz on all kits)

  • 1800MHz @ 7-7-7-20 1T with 2.0V
  • 1350MHz @ 7-7-7-20 1T with 2.0V
  • 1350MHz @ 4-4-4-12 1T with 2.3V
