Corsair Twin2X1024-8500 C5 PC2-8500 DDR-2 Memory Review

Corsair Twin2X1024-8500 C5 PC2-8500 DDR-2 Memory Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Corsair's latest Twin2X1024-8500 C5 memory is almost too hot to handle right out of the package, just look at these specs...

Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra, PCMark05, 3DMark05

SiSoft Sandra 2005 Source:Sandra

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system as well as the individual components. The results are also purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

2x 1024MB Super Talent T800UX2GC4 (200/800) 7314 7262

2x 512MB Corsair CM2X512-8500 (276/1104) 7415 7284

Memory bandwidth numbers are nice and high, 7200MB/s from a stock system is definitely very nice to see. Overclocking to 1104 MHz memory does not boost bandwidth numbers much because the processor's memory controller is running near stock speeds.

PCMark05 Source: FutureMark

PCMark05 is a premium tool for measuring both normal home use and simple 3D performance of the latest PC hardware. There are 11 system tests - each one is designed to represent a certain type of PC usage. By running these tests, PCMark05 stresses the components in a similar manner as they are stressed in normal home usage.

PCMark05 shows similar numbers as the other benchmarks, it cannot differentiate between the 1GB and 2GB kits. If your computer is simply doing office type tasks, 1GB of system memory is still plenty.

3DMark05 Source: FutureMark

3DMark05 is best suited for the latest generation of DirectX9.0 graphics cards. It is the first benchmark to require a DirectX9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shaders 2.0 or higher! By combining high quality 3D tests, CPU tests, feature tests, image quality tools, and much more, 3DMark05 is a premium benchmark for evaluating the latest generation of gaming hardware.

2x 512MB Corsair CM2X512-8500 (276/1104) 8943

3DMark05 does not benefit from more memory, but the CPU score does increase nicely due to the increased memory bandwidth from overclocking.
