Everest and SuperPI Results

For the first set of benchmarks I used Everest Ultimate Edition and SuperPI. As usual with all benchmarks here at OC3D, each test was carried out three times and the mean (average) calculated.

read score Write Score

Latency Test Super PI score

The results are somewhat typical of what we see with memory benchmarking. All the scores attained are impressive, with the overclocked Read Score hitting 8GB/s. The SuperPI times too are a far cry from the A64 results from only a few months ago. On the next page we can see how Mushkin's performed under some Sandra, 3DMark and FPS benchmarks.

Looks like some pretty nice looking RAM, can't say I've ever come across Mushkin before though.Quote

Great review!
Funnily enough I was reading about this yesterday, and you're right - there is no such thing as an Allendale according to Intel Quote

Ahhh, Apple. That would explain it. I try to steer away from Apple and advise others to do the same after the trouble I've experienced with Apple hardware (not just their PCs).Quote

Hehe me too. You'd think companies would think their names thoroughly before committing to them. A great example being the Mole Station Nursery, their web address of course being molesationnursery Quote

Thankyou guys. CPUz was wrong with a few things, the vlotage is way off, the core code-name is wrong (as you noticed) and the memory speed is reading as PC-6400 .........Quote

CPU-Z was not wrong, the codename changed from Allendale to Conroe.Quote

Ah well I don't make a habit of following name changes, either way the voltages and memory speeds are wrongQuote
