The details of how the Patriot PDC22G8000ELK
memory test system was configured for benchmarking, including the specific
hardware, software drivers, operating system and benchmark versions are
indicated below. In the second column are the general specs for the reference
platforms this pair of DDR-2 memory is to be compared against. Please take a
moment to look over PCSTATS test system configurations before moving on to the
individual benchmark results.
The memory will be tested at three
different settings: once at DDR2-667 speeds with CL3 settings, once at DDR2-800 with
CL4 settings and once at DDR2-1000 at CL5. Please keep in mind that in
order for the MSI P4N Diamond motherboard to reach DDR2-1000 speeds, the motherboard had
to be overclocked 251 MHz. The motherboard does support the ability to run the
memory slightly faster than the FSB, however it does not seem to function properly in
so doing, which is why the processor is overclocked so high.
