PCMark and 3DMark Performance


Futuremark PCMark and 3DMark Synthetic Tests
Higher numbers mean better system/gaming performance.


The additional memory speeds and lower latencies helped PCMark performance, but did nothing for 3DMark, which was limited by the graphics card. These tests were done on a board which can adjust memory frequencies independent of the front side bus, so it's interesting to see how little memory speeds affect real-world performance in a confined environment.  Please keep in mind, however, that increasing the memory speed while also overclocking the CPU and FSB would yield better results.
