Corsair DOMINATOR Twin2X2048-8888C4DF Memory Review

Corsair DOMINATOR Twin2X2048-8888C4DF Memory Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: DDR2 memory has come a long way from its humble beginnings as just a few DRAM chips on a sliver of green PCB. Now, memory isn't memory unless it has extravagant cooling systems and reaches insane clock speeds.

Benchmarks: 3DMark05, Doom 3, Quake 4

Futuremark 3DMark05 1.2.0 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.

3DMark50's overall score does not change too much, which is a bit disappointing. The CPU portion of the test gets a nice performance boost out of the higher memory speed.

ID Software Doom 3 1.3 Source: id Software

Doom 3 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.

2GB Kit Corsair DOMINATOR Twin2X2048-8888C4DF (200/1244) 213.4

The 2GB Corsair DOMINATOR Twin2X2048-8888C4DF is able to improve framerates by 12, just by overclocking the memory! Usually memory overclocking does not result in much of a performance boost in games but that's definitely not the case here.

ID Software Quake 4 1.3

Source: id Software

Quake 4 is the latest shooter from ID and is based on the Doom 3 engine. Tweaked to for more eye candy, Quake 4 promises to be tougher on videocards and systems than its predecessor was. Quake 4 also does not have a 60 fps limiter like Doom 3, with the Ultra setting, graphic textures

2GB Kit Corsair DOMINATOR Twin2X2048-8888C4DF (200/1244) 206.6

The performance boost in Quake 4 is smaller than in Doom 3, but you still get an 8 FPS boost which is pretty good when you consider this is all from the system memory.
