Kingston Genesis 4GB DDR3 2133MHz Review
Rendering always takes an improvement from every bit of power available and the improved bandwidth provided by the combination of the 2500K and the Kingston Genesis give us .4 pts improvement. Remember that the Hyper-X and Trident were tested on a hyper-threaded CPU and this is a pure Quad Core.
Similarly to CineBench wPrime is all about performing calculations as quickly as possible. The Genesis gives us a whole seconds worth of improvement which is mighty. This continues into the 1 billion place test where we might expect the hyper-threaded i7-870 to win in the long-distance, but the Genesis just keeps on rocking.
PC Mark Vantage
PC Mark has a plethora of "real-life" tests and the memory suite is largely based around media manipulation and encoding. The video editing clearly has a benefit from the extra threads available on the P55 system, but in the importing and exporting tests that huge bandwidth pays dividends.
