Crucial Ballistix 1600mhz & MOD Review
wPrime is similar to our rendering tests in that it benefits enormously from fast memory. The more memory bandwidth you have available the lower, and therefore better, will be your result. Despite both the Kingston and the Crucial being rated at the same speed and same timings, the Kingston is clearly more efficient gaining 50 seconds over the Crucial.
PC Mark Vantage and 3D Mark Vantage
Finally the two Futuremark suites. As these really stress the entire system as opposed to a single element of it you get a much clearer indication of overall performance. The standard Crucial is now lagging seriously behind and even with the overclock it just can't keep up with the Kingston. The only test is comes close is the GPU section of 3D Mark which is nearly entirely independant of anything but your graphics card.
