Corsair Dominator GT 1600MHz AM3 Review

Everest Ultimate Edition

Synthetic Benchmarks Continued

CPU Queen

CPU Queen is based on branch prediction and the misprediction penalties that are involved.

The nature of this particular test yielded very boring results. The operations involved in this benchmark do not have a significant dependency on memory.

CPU Photoworxx

PhotoWorxx as the name may suggest tests processors by means of invoking functions that are common to Photo Manipulation including Fill, Flip, Crop, Rotate, Difference and Colour to B&W conversion.

Photoworxx on the other hand seems to love memory bandwith, with a significant jump from 1333C9 to 1600C9. Timing configurations seem to have little effect on it.

CPU ZLib

This is an integer based benchmark that will test the CPU and Memory by means of the CPU ZLib compression library.

Again like CPU Queen, ZLib is not so dependent on memory.

Memory Bandwidth

Everest Ultimate Edition includes read and write benchmarks. Do note that the testing methods vary from SiSoft Sandra's bandwidth test and as such, the results between the two programs cannot be compared directly.

Next up, Futuremark and Games.

You can just tell that has been designed for recent ROG boards

Aye if the AMD's dont like high speed ram or at least overclocking the ram for high speeds then low latency just makes alot of sense.Quote

this ram is could boost your systems gaming performance specially for AMD platforms which suffer when compared to Intel's platforms.Quote

Should the latency numbers be higher or lower? What do they mean?Quote

The latency numbers should be lower because the AMD processor memory controller can’t deal with high speed memory so the only thing that will improve performance is to lower the memory latency which means it will respond in less time to orders that come from the CPU so the lower the better. I have tried low latency memory on a 965 AMD CPU and it did improve the performance.
