Super Talent Chrome Series PC3-16000 (2000MHz) 12GB Kit - Test System Setup and wPrime

It's been a while since we've looked at a kit from Super Talent, but let's check out this 2000MHz 12GB kit that combines big capacity with speed.

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Sapphire, Western Digital, Noctua and Corsair.

 

We'll have a look at the Super Talent 12GB PC3-16000 kit against a few kits today including the Kingston 24GB one, A-DATA 8GB Dual-Channel kit along with a few other 6GB triple channel kits.

 

Let's get started!

 

Important Note: When modules are overclocked we adjust the BCLK which not only lets us fine tune the MHz out of a module, but in turn increases the overall CPU clock speed. While we always make the effort to include the BCLK and CPU Speed in our graphs, please just make sure that you make note of these when looking at the results. In some tests that don't purely test the memory speed the extra MHz on offer from the CPU can increase the result. Of course, it's worth noting that having faster memory gives you the ability to run your CPU at a higher speed.

 


wPrime

wPrime uses a recursive call of Newton's method for estimating functions, with f(x)=x2-k, where k is the number we're sqrting, until Sgn(f(x)/f'(x)) does not equal that of the previous iteration, starting with an estimation of k/2. It then uses an iterative calling of the estimation method a set amount of times to increase the accuracy of the results. It then confirms that n(k)2=k to ensure the calculation was correct. It repeats this for all numbers from 1 to the requested maximum.

Mainly dependent on the CPU, we see the Super Talent kit sit a little further in the pack here.
