G.Skill FLARE PC3-16000 Memory Review

WPrime, PCMark & 3DMark Vantage

WPrime 32M

WPrime is an excellent multicore compliant alternative to SuperPi.

The 32M test shows the lower latency memory taking a marginal lead over the higher frequency configuration.

WPrime 1024M

Strangely the tables turn with the 1024M test where raw memory makes a 3 second difference.

PCMark Vantage

PCMark Vantage is Futuremark's flagship "System Wide" benchmark. With a large focus on day to day operations, it's an excellent means of judging the capability of a computer as a whole.

The two G.Skill configurations perform quite similarly here, while the Kingston set at 1600MHz C7 scores strangely low.

3DMark Vantage

3DMark Vantage is Futuremarks flagship gaming oriented benchmark at present and is considered to be a demanding one at that. Our tests were carried out under the "Performance" prefix.

Finishing off with the 3DMark Vantage test, we find all configurations performing quite similarly.
