DDR3 Memory Benchmarks: 3DMark06, Doom 3, FEAR

Futuremark 3DMark06 1.1.0 Source: FutureMark

3DMark06 is the worldwide standard in advanced 3D game performance benchmarking. A fundamental tool for every company in the PC industry as well as PC users and gamers, 3DMark06 uses advanced real-time 3D game workloads to measure PC performance using a suite of DirectX 9 3D graphics tests, CPU tests, and 3D feature tests. 3DMark06 tests include all new HDR/SM3.0 graphics tests, SM2.0 graphics tests, AI and physics driven single and multiple cores or processor CPU tests and a collection of comprehensive feature tests to reliably measure next generation gaming performance today.

Corsair DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D (460/1840) 2469

The Overall portion of 3DMark06 shows pretty static results, even when Corsair's Twin3X2048-1800C7D DDR3 modules are overclocked. The CPU portion of this test do see a nice boost however.

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.

LQ 640x480 FPS Ranking
Super Talent W1866UX2G8 DDR3-1866 (333/1333) 213.2
Corsair DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D (333/1333) 218.5
Corsair DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D (460/1840) 231.1

Between the two sets of DDR3 memory running at 1333 MHz, it is evident memory timings play a role in influencing overall performance. Overclocking the Corsair memory boosts framerate nicely, something to consider if the framerates in the games you play are not high enough.

Sierra FEAR 1.08

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

PCSTATS Benchmark ReportSierra FEAR
Minimum Settings 640x480: FPS Ranking
Super Talent W1866UX2G8 DDR3-1866 (333/1333) 573
Corsair DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D (333/1333) 571
Corsair DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D (460/1840) 592

FEAR framerates benefit a bit from overclocking the Corsair Twin3X2048-1800C7D DDR3. Oddly, memory latency does not seem to affect this benchmark. That would explain why the SuperTalent W1866UX2G8 memory beats the Corsair DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D memory even though the former has slightly bigger CAS timings.
