Performance @ Highest Overclock (Cont.)

We also re-ran the PCMark05 memory performance and F.E.A.R. benchmarks again with the Corsair Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF memory modules overclocked to DDR2-1158MHz on our Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 powered test bed...

Overclocked Performance with PCMark05
Overall Memory Score


An additional 48MHz netted an increase of only 8 points in PCMark05's memory performance benchmark. When compared to the default scores, however, we see an increase of over 1000 points.

In-Game Performance while Overclocked
System Memory Affects Frame rates?  You Betcha!

Performance in the F.E.A.R. benchmark didn't change much with the higher memory clock either.  In fact, we'd attribute the extra 1 frame per second to the slightly higher processor frequency, and not to the small increase in memory bandwidth offered by the 48MHz increase.
