Corsair XMS Xpert RAM
Performance @ 2-2-2-5 (Continued)
In this next round of benchmarks, we re-ran the Memory performance module built-into Futuremark's PCMark04 with each set of modules overclocked to their maximum stable clock speed, with the tight 2-2-2-5 timings.
We saw similar increases in performance with PCMark04's memory performance module. With the Corsair XMS Xpert sticks overclocked to DDR440, their PCMark "score" jumped by 300+ points. The score was a little behind the Pro sticks, but the performance different was miniscule and falls within the margin of error in this test.
We continued testing these modules with our custom low-resolution Doom 3 test while the systems were overclocked as well.
Overclocking the Corsair XMS Xpert sticks increased performance in our custom Doom 3 multi-player benchmark as well. The 20MHz clock speed bump, boosted the Xpert's framerate by 6.5 frames per second. The Pro sticks enjoyed a slightly larger boost, but again the performance delta was very small.
