3DMark05 overall results are mainly videocard limited, this is why all platforms perform at about the same level. In the CPU test the PNY XLR8 D22GX85XL-5 2GB memory kit performs as expected, overclocking gives us a noticeable performance bump.

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.

Even at stock speeds the PNY XLR8 D22GX85XL-5 handles extremely well, that's what tight timings can do for system performance. Overclocking boosts overall framerates more, but it looks like the Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 has enough bandwidth to go around.

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 can surpass the 500MB mark! Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.

2GB PNY XLR8 D22GX85XL-5 2GB (200/1220) 205.4

In the final test of the day we see again the PNY memory puts on a very good show. Only the system with the overclocked memory is able to crack the 200 fps barrier, that is darn quick.
