Corsair Dominator GT 8GB PC3-12800 CL8 kit

3D Benchmarks

3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.

Ubisoft has developed a new engine specifically for Far Cry 2, called Dunia, meaning "world", "earth" or "living" in Parsi. The engine takes advantage of multi-core processors as well as multiple processors and supports DirectX 9 as well as DirectX 10. Running the Far Cry 2 benchmark tool the test was run 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being omitted and the average calculated from the remaining 3.
Crysis is without doubt one of the most visually stunning and hardware-challenging games to date. By using CrysisBench - a tool developed independently of Crysis - we performed a total of 5 timedemo benchmarks using a GPU-intensive pre-recorded demo. To ensure the most accurate results, the highest and lowest benchmark scores were then removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.

Results conclusions
3D Mark was not the Dominator GT kits forte unfortunately and as such I did not expect the kit to perform to well in the games. However, as both Far Cry 2 and Crysis show, the additional 4GB of the 8GB Dominator GT kit gave a boost to the FPS in both games. So while most synthetic benchmarks will not show the performance advantage of additional memory, real world games and applications certainly benefit from the extra GBs the new Corsair kit provides.

Let's head over to the conclusion...
