Mushkin Enhanced PC3200 Special Edition Memory Review

Mushkin Enhanced PC3200 Special Edition Memory Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Now that the focus of enthusiasts and overclockers has shifted squarely onto maintaining low latency, raw clock speed just isn't as important as it seemed.

Benchmarks: 3DMark2001, X2: The Threat

3DMark2001SE Source: FutureMark

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics.

Higher numbers denote better performance.

The Athlon64 scores stay about the same, which is not surprising considering the CPU is running about the same speed. With the Pentium4 system we see a nice score increase due to overclocking.

X2: The Threat Source: Egosoft

A completely rewritten 3D engine based on DirectX8 encompasses many visual effects such as volumetric Nebulae (gas clouds) that have a real impact in the game (you can hide in them), many new engine, shield, weapon and explosion effects. Objects cast real dynamic 3D shadows! Dynamic DP3 bump mapping allows a previously unseen level of detail.

In X2: The Threat we see that the game acts very much like 3DMark2001. At stock speeds and overclocked, the Athlon64 system does not gain much because CPU is running approximately the same speed. On the Penitum4 system we see quite a nice performance boost, due in part with the higher overall bandwidth and higher CPU speed.
