Benchmark Results

Benchmark Results

For the benchmark phase of our review, the Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 2Gb kit was subjected to several popular benchmarks in order to illustrate outright performance. All benchmarks were run three times and an average taken to guarantee uniformity of the results.

Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 Everest Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 Sisoft

Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 Everest Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 Sisoft

In both the bandwidth and latency results Everest and Sisoft Sandra testing suites showed the highest results with the memory running at DDR2-1200. Despite this, the lower latency DDR2-833 (3-3-3-6) results certainly were not far behind.

Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 SuperPI Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 SuperPI

SuperPI certainly shows that it can make use of the extra bandwidth with the modules running at DDR2-1200, performing a whole 10 seconds faster in the 1M benchmark, and marginally faster in the 16M run.

Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 3DMark05 Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 3DMark06

Despite the fairly large differences between the Sandra and Everest bandwidth benchmarks, the results obtained from both 3DMark05 and 06 proved to be almost identical. This could possibly be a sign that the Core2Duo platform is not bottlenecked by memory bandwidth, and can performs just as well with a low latency DDR2-800 kit as it does with high latency DDR2-1200 in real-world applications and games.

Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 CSS Kingston HyperX PC2-9600 F.E.A.R

The same goes for both Counter-Strike:Source and F.E.A.R benchmarks, with both games showing a very slight FPS increase when running at DDR2-833 / 3-3-3-6.
