DDR-2 PC-5400 Performance Memory Shootout - OCZ vs. Corsair vs. Kingston - Benchmarks - ScienceMark 2.0

In our latest article we are comparing the performance of some of the top brands in DDR-2 memory modules. We've got modules on the test bench from OCZ (PC-5400 Performance series), Corsair (XMS2 Pro series) and Kingston (HyperX series). After taking a close look at each set of Dual Channel modules, we tested them at their default speeds and as far as we could overclock them.

ScienceMark 2.0

 

ScienceMark 2.0 is a mathematical program designed to stress the memory subsystems of both desktop/workstation and server environments to determine the read/write latency as well as the overall memory bandwidth available between the CPU and the memory controller.

 

- Access Latency

 

The first of the ScienceMark tests is the access latency - less is better.

 

 

Once again at default speeds the Corsair memory is well and truly ahead but when it comes to overclocking the OCZ memory takes the lead back - I feel as if I am repeating myself.

 

- Memory Bandwidth

 

Now we come to the memory bandwidth side of things, this is just like the Sandra memory benchmark - higher scores are better.

 

 

Same story as above and for the rest of our tests here as well.
