Mushkin PC10666 Low Voltage RAM Review
CineBench is almost the antithesis of our Sandra Memory Bandwidth in that it is hugely CPU dependant. Although our testing confirms this with the memory speed not making as much of a difference there is definitely something curious going on with the XMP2 profile on the Mushkin. As the CPU speed is similar to the Dominator GT 2000MHz kit the results should be on a par but it lags far behind both the 200BCLK and Dominator GT. Curious.
Curious as to whether this is an issue solely with CineBench we tested POV-Ray and although the drop-off wasn't as dramatic as we see above there is nonetheless some performance issue with rendering using an un-tweaked XMP2.
