3DMark06 is the worldwide standard in advanced 3D game performance benchmarking. A fundamental tool for every company in the PC industry as well as PC users and gamers, 3DMark06 uses advanced real-time 3D game workloads to measure PC performance using a suite of DirectX 9 3D graphics tests, CPU tests, and 3D feature tests. 3DMark06 tests include all new HDR/SM3.0 graphics tests, SM2.0 graphics tests, AI and physics driven single and multiple cores or processor CPU tests and a collection of comprehensive feature tests to reliably measure next generation gaming performance today.

3DMark06 test results are likewise pretty fuzzy. The Mushkin HP3-10666 RAM doesn't seem to be able to eek out a performance lead, even though it can run tight timings.

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.

Here we see the Mushkin HP3-10666 memory come out on top, this is thanks to its ability to run tight timings no doubt. Even when the memory and system are heavily overclocked, the computer has a hard time beating the stock configuration with tight memory timings!

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.

The framerate results from the Mushkin HP3-10666 DDR3 memory is pretty good. Once again low latency RAM leads the pack at stock speeds. If you're building a fast system look past the hype, take a close look at what memory timings the DIMMs can run at.
