Although Super Talent is still growing in popularity, they know how to put together a solid kit of ram. Today we will be taking a look at their latest “Performance” 4GB PC2-6400 kit with timings of 5-5-5.
Next on the list is Everest 3.5, with it’s read/write and latency tests. We broke through the 8K mark in our read tests and burst through 5,500 in our write. These benchmarks are heavily CPU bound as well though, so the higher your CPU frequency, the better effects your memory overclocks will have.
Once again, 1T helped out here, though the Write is virtually locked with the FSB speed.
These modules can’t brag about their spectacular latencies, but at the stock setting, it’s on par with 2GB kits.
This is not a memory benchmark per se, but rather one that stresses a single core of your CPU to it’s full potential. Because it crunches such an insane amount of digits, tighter timings and faster memory generally offers better results. We choose to run with an 8 million test, as anything lower flies by too fast on a Core 2 Duo and it’s hard to generally see the differences that way.
Though it’s no longer in development, Sciencemark is a tool I still like to keep in my chest… err thumb drive. It gives results far more in-depth than other benchmarking programs out there, although you’d have to be an engineer to care for -all- the information it delivers. It generates a bandwidth result just like Everest and Sandra does, and is effected by higher CPU clocks.
With those out of the way, let’s compare this 4GB kits performance to other kits we’ve reviewed in the past.
