DDR-2 PC-5400 Performance Memory Shootout - OCZ vs. Corsair vs. Kingston - Benchmarks - MP3 Encoding

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.

MP3 Encoding

 

Using a program called CD to MP3 Ripper (v1.50), we timed how long it would take to convert our retail copy of "50 Cent - Get Rich or Die Tryin'" from CDA to MP3 format using the bit rate size of 128kbit for the entire album. Obviously lower is better.

 

 

This is one of the only tests where the Corsair and OCZ memory have provided equal performance at default settings.

 

However, when overclocked the OCZ memory is able to jump ahead but most of the power to encode comes from the CPU so this is why the OCZ is so far out in front.
