Mushkin PC12800 6GB Ridgeback Review


For our rendering tests we're using CineBench R11.5, and the freeware Ray-Tracer, POV-Ray. The graphs are so similar to each other it's almost spooky.

At 1600MHz, the Mushkin again spanks the Dominator GT, and when we move on to the 2000MHz testing it's finally beating into second place by the Kingston Hyper X. Once you take into account the small difference between the results, and that the other two kits are designed to run at 2000MHz, it shows how well the Mushkin is coping with the overclock.






Normality is restored for our final test with the Ridgeback being King of the 1600MHz bracket by quite a margin, and when overclocked managing to beat its pricier rivals.
