Memory size seems to have an influence in the outcome of the Quake III Arena tests.
It appears that there is more of an increase in frame rates per second (fps)
when there is more system memory used under Windows 2000. Using the Highest Quality
setting, the HQ test reveals that again, the size of memory has more of
an affect on the frame
rates, just like the
Normal setting test showed. In the FS mode, I set the TwinMOS PC166 to run at CAS2,
and it showed itself to be faster than those modules which ran at CAS2 and CAS3,
regardless of their size.
After all the benchmarks were performed, there was a clear distinction that not all memory could perform at as high a level as the TwinMOS PC166; especially when we consider it is only certified to perform at a rated PC166@CAS3, and not CAS2!.
While I was not able to run my system at any FSB over 160MHz the TwinMOS PC166 memory was still able to surprise an impress me with its ability to run stable at 160MHz @ CAS2. Very impressive indeed. When comparing the different brands and sizes of the memories used, it became evident that TwinMOS has quite a bright future for itself, and just about anyone in the performance crowd would surely like to get a hold of their products.
