3DMark, Quake 4, F.E.A.R & CS:Source


3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed 3 times with averages being calculated from each of the results.

F.E.A.R. is a game based on the Lithtech Jupiter EX engine. It has volumetric lighting, soft shadows, parallax mapping and particle effects.Included in the game is a benchmark facility that taxes the entire PC system. This benchmark was run 3 times to ensure uniformity of results.

Counter-Strike:Source is a popular multi-player FPS based on the extremely scaleable Source engine. The game takes advantage of many DirectX 9.0c features, but is fairly undemanding on the GPU and tends to thrive on systems with fast CPU's and Memory.

Result Observations

Unlike the application benchmarks over the previous page, the performance difference between 7-7-7-20 and 6-7-7-20 goes totally undetected in Quake4, Fear and 3DMark06. This just goes to show that the increased bandwidth and lower latency figures shown by Sisoft Sandra and Everest with the memory running at CL6 don't neccesarily equate to an increase in real-world performance. However, with the memory overclocked to 1472mhz and the latencies relaxed to 9-9-9-25 we can see a small FPS advantage in CS:Source, FEAR and Quake4 with a fairly significant points advantage in 3DMark05/06.

Very good write up, Jim!

But the timings seem to lose at the moment... Stick with DDR2 until DDR3 price drops a little and they sort out those timings!

Mr. Smith
Timings! Did you learn nothing from this lol.

Goes off to read review...

Edit: Well, they are very average aren't they. I think you should remove 'Reasonable performance' from 'The Good' and add it to 'The Mediocre'. Reasonable does not strike me as a good attribute.

Good review though, just average sticksQuote
