Quake 3 Arena Benchmarks

Okay, you'll have to look closely at those graphs for a second to fully grasp the impact of the TwinMOS DDRAM over that of the Crucial memory. Basically there is no competition. Once again the TwinMOS is able to yield better performance than the Crucial memory was able to. The first chart shows an average of 11.4 FPS lead (at 146MHz) with the TwinMOS stick. A side note, it's not surprising that the 2 sticks of Crucial ram are performing on par with each other even though one is twice the size of the other stick, they're both using the same timings in the BIOS.

Obviously more of the same when the bus speed is higher. I was quite impressed with the score of 214 FPS in Quake III, especially since this is a new high for myself! One thing's for sure, Quake III loves high bus speeds and high memory bandwidth doesn't hurt at all!

DDRAM has a very bright future as the successor to SDRAM. DDR has more than enough memory bandwidth to feed today's, and tomorrow's processors, it's relatively cheap to produce and only requires manufacturers to upgrade their current machines instead of replacing them all together. Most importantly, it is fast!

For anyone even considering buying a new computer, or upgrading their current AMD system, consider going DDR as a must.

Motherboards that support DDR memory are just a bit more expensive than their SDRAM counterparts so why would a consumer skimp on performance in the long run? If you stick to SDRAM you may find yourself regretting it in the future, especially with impressive offerings like this from TwinMOS.
