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...

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.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

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.Quote

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.Quote
