PQI's PQI24200-1GDB DDR2 Turbo Memory Kit

Article Index

Performance at Highest Stable Overclock

For our final round of tests, we set each kit to run at 4-4-4-12 and raised our test system's FSB as high as possible.  In this segment, the peak bus speed hit with both sets of DIMMs was 251MHz.

PQI24200-1GDB (4-4-4-12)
251MHz FSB/ 336MHz (DDR672)

XMS2-5300Pro (4-4-4-12)
251MHz FSB/ 336MHz (DDR672)

The Corsair memory managed to maintain an edge over the PQI24200 by 100MB on average, in both the integer and floating point tests.  Both sets were the fastest modules when compared to SANDRA's integrated reference set.

Performance Comparison with PCMark04
Overall Memory Score

With PCMark04, the PQI24200 dipped below the comparison Corsair DIMMs by 92 points overall.  This was a wider margin when compared to the stock results, but in the end we'd have to question if these differences would be noticed in the real world.

Even with Wolfenstein: ET, the Corsair memory managed to push ahead of the PQI24200 memory for the first time in this review, although these results were still very tight.
