Total Performance Rating
The TPR graph is a combination of all our benchmarks in which we test our memory modules with.
The TPR number is a combination of:-
wPrime Benchmark, Everest Ultimate, SiSoft Sandra, Sciencemark 2.0 and Far Cry 2.
Due to the nature of some benchmarks where scores having a lower is better result, we've had to change the way we do the numbers when compared to our video card ones. Far Cry 2, SiSoft Sandra and Everest Ultimate numbers are all combined. In Sciencemark 2.0 and wPrime Benchmark where a lower number is better, we have a base number of 300. The score we get from the kit is then removed off that number. There's a total of 600 base points.
For example; if the wPrime Benchmark score is 193.266 and 6.297 for 1024M and 32M respectively, the number that is added to the graphs is 400. That number is obtained by using the following equation: 600 - 193.266 - 6.297 = 400.437. It's then rounded down to 400 in this case. In the event that the RAM was slower in wPrime, the total would be lower which represents our TPR graphs exactly how we want.
Overall the performance is very strong. When overclocked the kit falls only behind kits that are clocked 500MHz DDR faster. The great performance is thanks to the aggressive timings and the decision to go with 1T over 2T.
We've been impressed with the Plus Series kits in the past and to be honest, going into the review we expected similar high performance from this kit. The good news is that the kit didn't disappoint; we had no problems getting the default clocks which is always a must, but overclocking was good, too. And while not as big as some other kits we've looked at, the timings are great and as we mentioned the decision to go with 1T over 2T has done wonders for memory performance.
Outside just the performance of the kit, the highlight of the kit is that cooler that A-DATA opt for on the series. The heatsink is of excellent quality and what's even better is that the heatsink doesn't take up heaps of room and doesn't conflict with our Noctua cooler which is quite large.
The A-DATA Plus Series PC3-15000 6GB kit is quality in all aspects. The kit performs strong not only in benchmarks, but also when considering the quality of the module. While 1866MHz DDR isn't the most common number these days, it's still one we see a bit and compared to 2000MHz DDR kits it also comes in a little cheaper.
