Benchmarks: PCMark04, 3DMark2001, X2: The Threat

PCMark04 Source: FutureMark

PCMark04 is the latest version of the popular PCMark series. PCMark04 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark04 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate results.

Overall Points Ranking
2x 512MB Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 5368
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5400 (200/533) 5372

Memory Points Ranking

For some reason, the Corsair Twin2X1024-4300C3 DIMMs scored lower in both overall and memory portions of PCMark04 than the other modules at stock speeds. Overclocking shows a very real boost in performance as you might expect. Let's see how this translates into 3D performance.

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.

Memory Points Ranking
2x 512MB Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 23186
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5400 (200/533) 23244
2x 512MB PQI Turbo PQI25400-1GB (200/533) 23156
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-4300C3 (200/533) 23102
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-4300C3 (245/653) 26532

Despite the lower PCMark04 scores, the Corsair memory does fairly well here in 3DMark2001SE, and is able to break 26.5k when the system is overclocked!

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.

X2 The Threat - 640x480
Memory FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 171.365
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5400 (200/533) 172.551
2x 512MB PQI Turbo PQI25400-1GB (200/533) 170.538
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-4300C3 (200/533) 174.775
2x 512MB Corsair Twin2X1024-4300C3 (245/653) 198.468

The Corsair Twin2X1024-4300C3 memory did very well here in X2: The Threat, and was able to beat the other DDR2 memory we've tested. Overclocked, the system is almost able to break the 200fps barrier.
