Corsair Dominator TWIN2X2048-10000C5DF
Performance @ Rated Speeds (Cont.)
In this next round of benchmarks, we re-ran the Memory performance module built-into Futuremark's PCMark05 with each set of modules set to their rated frequencies and timings
These PCMark results give some insight into how the benchmark tabulates its final score. The relatively low latency and high-bandwidth offered by the TWIN2X2048-10000C5DF kit put it firmly in the lead by a few hundred points here. But notice that the OCZ kit, which offered less bandwidth than the 8500C5 kit due to its slightly lower clock speed, actually scores higher, because of the lower latency associated with the configuration necessary to get the kit running at its rated speed.
We continued testing these modules with some low-quality F.E.A.R. benchmark runs while the systems were running at their rated speeds as well.
F.E.A.R. didn't show much of an improvement despite the much higher clocks speeds and increased bandwidth offered by all three of the kits we tested. Other games, however, that may be more dependant on memory bandwidth, would show larger improvements.
