G.Skill Sniper SR2 8GB Kit Review

Latency and PC Mark Vantage

G.Skill Sniper SR2 8GB 1.25v Sandybridge Kit Review

AIDA64 Latency

Sometimes it's easy to get bogged down in numbers. We learn that for some things, time taken to render, latency etc, a smaller number is better than a large one and sometimes, bandwidth or Vantage scores, bigger is better.

It's important to remember that although there might be an apparent big difference here in the latency, a whole 10ns slower than the other kits, we're measuring in billionths of a second. So it's 100,000,000th of a second slower. Exactly. Nothing to worry about.

PC Mark Vantage

Just as the proof of the pudding is in the eating, the proof of performance is the PC Mark Vantage suite and here the Sniper is an able performer. Not on the leading edge, but more than enough for most uses.

Seems a great kit, would probably work well in a little SB file/media server for the eco people out there were it needs the performance when prompted for it but cuts back on leccy usage even that little bit over 1.5v kits.
