Mushkin PC10666 Low Voltage RAM Review

CineBench R11.5

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.

Nice review. And I must say the Ridgeback heatspreaders look amazing.

But quick question. You seem very amazed at the fact that the kit can do 7-7-7-20 @ 1333MHz 1.5V. But I'm doing that right now with some very cheap 6GB Kingston value RAM, that was rated at 9-9-9-25 @ 1333MHz 1.5V and it's even 1T CMD rate. I don't even have heatspreaders on them. Am I really lucky here or is this something any kit can do @ 1333MHz? Of course I can't do more then 1600MHz 1.65V so that's where the Mushkin kit goes stratospheric.Quote

good review

just an edit for you though on page two you missed the h in though and added an a

We much prefer the stealthy appearance of the Ridgeback to some of the more "shouty" designs we've seen. It's a nice tough to see a Mushkin logo on the top face of the DIMMs as this is where it will actually be visible.Quote
