G.Skill Trident DDR3-2500 4GB Review
A couple of things to note about the graphs. Firstly although both the HyperX and Trident are at their XMP, the G.Skill is rated at 363 MHz faster. The 'Tweak' version of the HyperX is pretty much the same as the XMP settings for the Trident, so really the main comparison is between the two middle bars. The orange bar is for the 2400MHz CAS 8 settings, which should see reasonably similar results.
Read tests are pretty nice in which the reduction down to CAS8 at the expense of barely any clock speed really pays dividends over the default G.Skill. The Write test is almost linear with clock speed, apart from the HyperX stealing quite a march on the rest. Yet once we move to the Copy test, which should be a nice balance between read and write, it all settles down with the G.Skill at XMP settings just holding a slender lead.
When the discussion is held between those who believe low CAS is more important and those who feel speed is king, we generally have seen in recent times that speed just about wins out. Because we've hardly lost any speed to obtain our CAS8 rating on the tweaked G.Skill then all three kits in the 2400MHz area give very similar results.
