Corsair XMS3 DHX PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) 4GB Kit
Synthetic Benchmark Results
Everest is an information & diagnostic utility complete with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem. Each of these benchmarks were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average calculated from the remaining 3.
Cinebench 10 is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. The suite uses complex renders to gauge the performance of the entire PC system in both single-core and multi-core modes. Testing was performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being omitted and an average created from the remaining 3 results.
SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers. It's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching. Once again, testing was performed a total of 5 times, with an average being calculated from the middle three results.
At its stock speed of 1600mhz, the Corsair XMS3 DHX kit falls behind the higher-clocked Crucial and CSX kits in the Everest memory benchmarks. This is obviously expected, as these particular benchmarks are not affected by the quantity of ram (2GB vs 4GB) but only its speed. However, as we move on to the Cinebench and SuperPI 1m tests, the difference in results is less prominent.
With the XMS3 kit overclocked to DDR3-2000, the tables turn. With a speed now equalling that of the other kits on test, the XMS3 kit is able to take the crown in both SuperPI, Everest and Cinebench.
