Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 1866 6GB Kit

Synthetic Benchmarks

SiSoftware Sandra
(the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.


Focusing mainly on software and hardware information reporting, Everest also comes with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem. Each of these benchmarks were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average calculated from the remaining 3.
Super PI
SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers. It's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching. Once again, testing was performed a total of 5 times, with an average being calculated from the middle three results.
 Results Observations
Sisoft Sandra showed just how much more bandwidth the Dominator GT's allow. Everest also showed  the Dominator GT's to be by far the faster modules.
SuperPI again showed the GT's to be superior even though the original Dominators got off to a quick start with the 1m run. Over a greater amount of time though the Dominator GT's showed their worth beating its forbear by a fair margin.
Let's move on to the 3D benchmarks...

Blimey, that Dominator GT kit really goes like stink! I'm surprised about how much the added bandwith and tighter timings affected framerates. Questionable value for money but if one really wants the best, this memory kit seems to be quite a candidate. Excellent review w3bbo Quote

Nice review. I am thinking about swapping out my memory on my current rig, but I think this kit is a bit too much for my pocket. Here's hoping the price drops quickQuote
