Benchmarks Part 2

Kingston LoVo  1866 Memory Review

Benchmarks Part Two

Let's move on to the 3D benchmarks and hopefully get at least something to talk about.

PC Mark Vantage

PC Mark Vantage definitely shows the consistency of this kit, with the graphs following a very predictable pattern.

 

3D Mark Vantage

Moving to 3D tests we'll hopefully see a little variance if only because bringing graphics into the equation always gives us more chance for the odd fluctuation.

Not here though. This Kingston is bullet-proof.

 

Crysis Warhead

Still able to find the flaws in any setup, Warhead could be expected to show up the odd problem, but although there is a small variance in the average fps, which is what matters, the Kingston still sits atop. 2FPS from such a small speed increase is excellent.

 

Dirt 2

Dirt 2, if we allow that 1fps is within tolerance, gives identical results across the board. Although it has many tweaks for the DirectX 11 API, the fact the bulk of it is designed for a console shines through.

 

NFS Shift

Shift is much more pliant. Even if you did a hundred back-to-back runs with identical hardware you'd never get the same results twice. That is clear to see here with the 1600MHz LoVo having the highest minimum fps like it did in Dirt, when at 1866MHz it clearly wins, and yet when we get to the average results we have the same pattern we've seen throughout the last two pages.

With more people interested in green hardware, Kingston have thrown their hat into the ring.

The trouble is NVIDIA (Green) are beaten out in the energy efficiency ring by AMD (Red) meaning a truly energy efficient PC will end up looking more like a Christmas tree than a miniaturised Hulk

Nicely done that! Have you looked to compare these against g.skill eco kits? I have all 3 from the range here.. 1600cl7, cl8, cl9. All 1.35v. All very nice kits

hate to be the sore thumb in all of this. but a reduction of 300mv makes something "green" these days? I would be curious to know the total current draw, based on an amp/watt total....vs. "normal ram"

I don't think a reduction of 300mv and a green heat spreader can really be called "low voltage".....maybe "slightly lower voltage" or "slovo" would have been more appropriate a title (lolz c wut i did thar?)

seriously "green" seems to be the hype marketing term these days, for products that really aren't that different

I do however, applaud them for effort....
