Kingston HyperX DDR3 CL9 2000mhz 3GB Triple channel 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 faster Kingston took the advantage and beat the Corsair throughout the tests. Despite the Corsair having lower timings, the higher bandwidth of the Kingston HyperX showed it is not worth the 6GB if it means sacrificing speed.

Let's head over to the conclusion...

We have for review today, the first 2000MHz triple channel kit. The Kingston HyperX 2000MHz Triple channel kit is, at the time of writing this review, the fastest kit available for i7.

I like the heat spreaders on those.

But the price....

Linky to the forum is broken!

Also nice review, but preferred to see a 6GB at 1800, 3GB doesn't cut it, especially at those prices

i really love the Red heat spreaders on my G Skill i think they are tastefully done but they still look good but good point on changing color on the PCB... anyways that price is likely more then we mid-rangers can afford... but for performance good show...

Holy heck. That RAM flies. Didn't think that such a small (relative) difference between the two kits could have such a big effect in the graphs.

It's a steep price to pay, but i7 isn't a cheap thing to adopt anyway and if we pay 300 notes for our graphics, then why not speed up the whole system for less?

It looks like there was an overclock on the CPU too so that might have affected at least superpi and game performance :/
