G.Skill Trident Extreme Performance F3-16000CL9 DDR3 P55 Kit

Synthetic Benchmarks



SiSoftware Sandra
(the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.
 
 
 


Everest
 
Focusing mainly on software and hardware information reporting, Everest also comes 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.
  
 
 
 
 
Super PI
 
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.
 
 
 
 
 
Results Observations
 
 As expected the overclocked score gives the best results. Special consideration should be given to the SuperPI results as the CPU clockspeed would have had a drastic effect on the results being that PI is primarily a CPU stress/benchmark. Never the less with the XMP value of 2000MHz, the scores were very good and you would do well to bear in mind that 2000MHz is actually the rated speed of this kit.
 
Let's move on to the 3D benchmarks...

We were impressed with the 6GB kit of the same name but felt let down by it's overclocking performance. Let's see if the 4GB GSkill Trident kit can even things up...

Awesome review as always W3bbo. Nice looking kit too. Glad to see they didn't mess with the 6GB sinks/scheme. Damn fine bandwidth for dual channel too.

Small thing, red text on blue background gives VB a headache. Nearly impossible to focus on.

Out of interest what's wrong with the packaging being the same as the 4GB pack, isn't it a 4GB pack (mediocre bit)

Other manufacturers such as Corsair are differentiating there P55 kits (4G from the X58 (6G kits. Albeit they are most likely the exact same modules, little touches such as blue fins instead of red for the Dominator GT's make the difference from a mediocre package to a good package. All it takes is a little thought and imagination rather than boxing them up in the same format minus one stick.

Nice review, this is the ram I've had my sights on the last few weeks, Corsair too expensive for what you get.

The Corsair 1600C8's use mediocre Micron IC's & cost more than these G.Skill Tridents, the Corsair GT's are around 125 for the 1600C7 & 160 for the 2000C8 although they are probally Elpida Hypers.

In general UK retail is poor for P55 ram choice at the moment, OcUK only offering the widest choice at present & that lacks somewhat as they dont compete with choice with the likes of Newegg in the USA.

Ebuyer, Novatech, Misco, MemoryC, Dabs, MicroDirect, CCLonline, Aria, Scan, Ebuyer, Tekheads, Yoyotech all rubbish at their actual product range of DDR3 P55 Ram.

I spoke to memoryc who go also under the name of gobeyond who are a ram distributor requesting ram not stocked, they wasnt interested which is very poor considering they have a crap range at present. Novatech just want to sell G.Skill ram.

I would like to see more retailers stocking Team, A-Data, Mushkin, Geil DDR3 Ram for the P55 chipset, I know it's the same ic's but it would be nice to have a choice of kit instead of everyone having to be boring using G.Skill because no one stocks any other product.
