Corsair Dominator GT 1600MHz AM3 Review
Synthetic Benchmarks Continued
CPU Queen is based on branch prediction and the misprediction penalties that are involved.
The nature of this particular test yielded very boring results. The operations involved in this benchmark do not have a significant dependency on memory.
PhotoWorxx as the name may suggest tests processors by means of invoking functions that are common to Photo Manipulation including Fill, Flip, Crop, Rotate, Difference and Colour to B&W conversion.
Photoworxx on the other hand seems to love memory bandwith, with a significant jump from 1333C9 to 1600C9. Timing configurations seem to have little effect on it.
This is an integer based benchmark that will test the CPU and Memory by means of the CPU ZLib compression library.
Again like CPU Queen, ZLib is not so dependent on memory.
Everest Ultimate Edition includes read and write benchmarks. Do note that the testing methods vary from SiSoft Sandra's bandwidth test and as such, the results between the two programs cannot be compared directly.
