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.

Super Talent W1866UX2G8 DDR3-1866 (475/1900) 2471

With the Super Talent memory running at stock speeds, 3DMark06 performance is very good. Surprisingly, the CPU score is the same at default speeds for each brand of DDR3. Overclocking boosts the Overall and CPU test scores.

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
Corsair Twin3X2048-1800C7D (333/1333) 218.5
Super Talent W1866UX2G8 DDR3-1866 (333/1333) 213.2
Super Talent W1866UX2G8 DDR3-1866 (475/1900) 228.4

The story between the two DDR3 memory modules is quite close. In the grand scheme of things overclocking doesn't boost framerates that much in this game. When the game is rendering at over 200 fps, it's not really necessary in any case.

Sierra FEAR 1.08

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.

Super Talent W1866UX2G8 DDR3-1866 (475/1900) 590

As with Doom 3, we see a bit of an increase in framerates from DDR3 system memory running overclocked, but it isn't a mind blowing change. One thing is for certain, if you're going to be overclocking the memory you should overclock the rest of your system too! (duh)
