Mushkin XP2-6400 4GB Memory Kit Review - PCSTATS
It's a good thing that Mushkin has produced this high performance 4GB memory kit... yes, that's FOUR GIGABYTES! In this case, each individual memory stick is 2GB in size and comes running at DDR2-800 speeds with timings of 4-3-3-10.

Memory Benchmarks Vista 64: Doom 3, FEAR

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.

Doom 3 results elevate the 4GB Mushkin memory kit into a pretty good light in Vista 64-bit. Overclocking in this 64-bit operating system does boost framerates somewhat, although not high enough to be really noticeable.

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.

In the last benchmark of the day, the 4GB Mushkin XP2-6400 memory kit puts on another good show in Windows Vista 64-bit. Overclocking here nets a ~10% boost in framerates which should make a difference if you find the game too slow. Memory size does not matter that much in gaming.
