SiSoft Sandra 2002 is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

SiSoft Sandra 2002 Pro Benchmark Results

Memory Bench (133 MHz FSB)


1. 256MB Corsair XMS PC2400 2046 MB/s Int/ 1450 MB/s FPU
2. 256MB OCZ PC2400 2045 MB/s Int/ 1439MB/s FPU
1. 256MB Apacer PC2100 2048 MB/s Int/ 1455 MB/s FPU
2. 256MB Micron PC2100 2043 MB/s Int/ 1445 MB/s FPU

Memory Bench (Highest each stick will go)

1. 256MB Corsair XMS PC2400 (171 MHz FSB) 2566 MB/s Int/ 2397 MB/s FPU
2. 256MB OCZ PC2400 (170 MHz FSB) 2559 MB/s Int/ 2395 MB/s FPU
1. 256MB Apacer PC2100 (166 MHz FSB) 2466 MB/s Int/ 2284 MB/s FPU
2. 256MB Micron PC2100 (170 MHz FSB) 2560 MB/s Int/ 2390 MB/s FPU

At stock speeds, since all of the memory was set to run with the most aggressive settings, each stick performed about the same as one another. However when the individual sticks are overclocked, the men are separated from the boys.

With the XMS2400 Corsair running at the highest FSB, it's no wonder it also has the most memory bandwidth. Please remember though, these Sandra 2002 Pro scores are not comparable to other versions of Sandra.

3DMark2001 Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001 is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

3DMark2001 Benchmark Results

Memory Bench (133 MHz FSB)


1. 256MB Corsair XMS PC2400


2. 256MB OCZ PC2400


1. 256MB Apacer PC2100


2. 256MB Micron PC2100


Memory Bench (Highest each stick will go)

1. 256MB Corsair XMS PC2400 (171 MHz FSB)


2. 256MB OCZ PC2400 (170 MHz FSB)


1. 256MB Apacer PC2100 (166 MHz FSB)


2. 256MB Micron PC2100 (170 MHz FSB)


At stock speeds, all the scores for each stick of memory are within the margin of error. However when the are overclocked, the XMS2400 Corsair leads the way. 3DMark2001 has always been known to like high FSB's/memory bandwidth and those are some very nice healthy increases!
