Corsair DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D 2GB DDR3-1800 Memory Kit Review
Corsair DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D 2GB DDR3-1800 Memory Kit Review - PCSTATS
Corsair's DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D kit certainly has impressive specs; two 1GB sticks of DDR3 rated at DDR3-1800 (PC3-14400) speed, and a CAS latency of 7-7-7-20.

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system as well as the individual components. The results are also purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

Only one other DDR3 memory module was available at the time of this review, so the comparisons over the next few pages are going to be pretty succinct. :-) Memory bandwidth of the Corsair DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D DDR3 memory is very good at stock speeds, when overclocked it breaks the 8000 MB/s mark. Impressive. Corsair's memory does better in the latency tests due to its tighter stock timings. Overclocking also improves results in the latency benchmark.

WinRAR Internal Benchmark Source: RARLabs

This command generates random data, which contain specially introduced redundancy increasing load to processor and memory. Then data are passed through RAR compression and decompression algorithms and output of decompression algorithm is compared with source data. If any difference found, WinRAR reports "Errors found - Yes" in the command window. Also WinRAR displays a size of processed data and compression speed, current and resulting, in kilobytes per second. You may use the resulting speed value to compare RAR performance in different conditions.

Corsair DOMINATOR Twin3X2048-1800C7D (460/1840) 1612

Tighter timings at DDR3-1333 MHz allow the Corsair Twin3X2048-1800C7D DDR3 modules to eek out a slight lead over Super Talent's W1866UX2G memory, in WinRAR's internal test. Overclocking boosts throughput, and the system is able to compress 1612KB/s which is pretty darn sweet.

PCMark05 is a premium tool for measuring both normal home use and simple 3D performance of the latest PC hardware. There are 11 system tests - each one is designed to represent a certain type of PC usage. By running these tests, PCMark05 stresses the components in a similar manner as they are stressed in normal home usage.

The PCMark05 results are especially interesting, have a look at the memory portion of the test. There is almost a 160 point lead from the Corsair memory, even at DDR3-1333 MHz. Overclocking simply makes things faster.
