Kingston Genesis 4GB DDR3 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.

wPrime 95

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.

Awesomely fast, affordable and looks great. Finally some unpainted heatsinks. These along with some of their more traditional blue heatsinks on a MSI board will be awesome xDQuote

the set my mate got are doing 2200mhz @ 9-10-9-26-1t 100% stable and are hit and miss @2000 cas8 but the gains all come from the mhz with them latency didnt gain much in benchmarks.

the one thing (other than the balls out performance) that struck me about them was the look, the etched hyper x on the gun metal grey is such a nich look that they just ooze so much understated class its untrue. i can only imagine how hard it was to get some nice pics of them, they go from a matt grey to shining like a diamond within a couple of degree.

i havent seen ram look as good as this since corsair first released the dominator range.Quote
