Sandra 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


1. 256MB Corsair XMS2400 (171 MHz CL2) 2597 MB/s Int/ 2434 MB/s FPU
1. 256MB OCZ PC3000 (195 MHz CL2.5) 2978 MB/s Int/ 2654 MB/s FPU
2. 256MB Mushkin PC2100 (133 MHz CL2) 2055 MB/s Int/ 1962 MB/s FPU
3. 256MB Mushkin PC2100 (178 MHz CL2) 2739 MB/s Int/ 2563 MB/s FPU

At 178 MHz FSB with a setting of CL2 the Mushkin is well above the Corsair XMS2400 at 170 MHz FSB and performs just under the OCZ PC3000 DDR. Looks like Mushkin is doing something right!

PCMark 2002 Source: MadOnion

PCMark is a new benchmark from our pals at MadOnion which a whole system benchmark. It can be used on desktop PC's, Laptops and even Workstations and tests everyday computing from home to office usage. PCMark specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used), video performance and even laptop batteries. This benchmark was released March 12, 2002 and can be downloaded from Madonion if you would like to give it a test run on your computer for comparisons sake... don't cry to hard when you compare your numbers to the ones listed below!

1. 256MB Corsair XMS2400 (171 MHz CL2)


2. 256MB OCZ PC3000 (195 MHz CL2.5)


3. 256MB Mushkin PC2100 (133 MHz CL2)


4. 256MB Mushkin PC2100 (178 MHz CL2)


PCMark 2002 is a brand new benchmark from our pals over at MadOnion (gotta love that onion logo) and one of the things it tests is memory performance. Here the OCZ leads the pack slightly since PCMark tests overall available memory bandwidth.

3DMark2001 SE Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001 SE 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 SE 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.

RAM 3DMarks Ranking
1. 256MB Corsair XMS2400 (171 MHz CL2)


2. 256MB OCZ PC3000 (195 MHz CL2.5)


3. 256MB Mushkin PC2100 (133 MHz CL2)


4. 256MB Mushkin PC2100 (178 MHz CL2)


3DMark2001 SE seems to like the Mushkin PC2100 DDR quite a bit! 9485 3Dmarks are simply an awesome score for a non overclocked GeForce3 Ti500 based system.... and the AthlonXP 2000+ can't hurt either! :) Up next, the gaming benchmarks.
