Benchmarks: Doom 3, Battlefield 2

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 is the most advanced game to date. it takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limit. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times with the third run being recorded.

Doom 3
LQ 640x480: FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Patriot PEP5125600ELK PC5600 (200/400) 127.5
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400) 126.4
2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 125.7
2x 1024MB OCZ PC4000 Gold (200/400) 128
2x 1024MB OCZ PC4000 Gold (253/506) 132.4

In Doom 3 we do see some minor performance improvement with the 2GB OCZ PC4000 Gold memory modules running. Remember its running looser timings than the other DIMMs yet is able to perform at the same speed.

Battlefield 2

In Battlefield 2, players will choose to fight for one of three military superpowers: the United States, the Chinese, or the newly formed Middle East Coalition. Armed with the latest modern weaponry, players can take control of any of the game’s 30+ vehicles to engage in major conflicts with over 64 players in some of the largest online battles on the PC. Test is run five times, which will then be averaged with the highest and lowest runs disregarded, settings are high quality at 1024x768.

Battlefield 2
HQ 1024x768: FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Patriot PEP5125600ELK PC5600 (200/400) 190.94
2x 512MB Corsair TwinX1024-3200XL PRO (200/400)

185.63

2x 512MB Centon GEMiNi PC3200 (200/400) 192.11
2x 1024MB OCZ PC4000 Gold (200/400) 314.55
2x 1024MB OCZ PC4000 Gold (253/506) 343.37

These results should not be a surprise to anyone who plays Battlefield 2, but it underscores how 2GB of memory really can improve things drastically in specific game titles, while not at all in others like Doom3. Thanks to the latest patch, Battlefield 2 uses a ton of memory, over 800MB according to task manager. The game does not leave a lot of memory for services running in the background, hence the benefit we see here when running more than 1GB of RAM.
