G.Skill Flare Series PC3-16000 (2000MHz) 4GB Kit - Total Performance Rating (TPR)

Designed for the X6 AMD platform, we see if G.Skill can light a flare that's nice and bright for AMD users.

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.

In comparison to the Intel platforms, the Flare kit doesn't shine as brightly because of the way the AMDs handle memory.
