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

3D Benchmarks

3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.

Ubisoft has developed a new engine specifically for Far Cry 2, called Dunia, meaning "world", "earth" or "living" in Parsi. The engine takes advantage of multi-core processors as well as multiple processors and supports DirectX 9 as well as DirectX 10. Running the Far Cry 2 benchmark tool the test was run 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being omitted and the average calculated from the remaining 3.

Results conclusions
 Again, the CPU clockspeed should be taken into consideration when viewing the results which perhaps have a greater bearing on the results than the memory bandwidth, especially with the 4GHz (2000MHz) and 4.3 GHz (2150MHz) settings when compared to the stock 2.93GHz (1600Mhz).

Let's head over to the conclusion...

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.Quote

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