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.
The Super Talent kit performs extremely well with it even outpacing some modules with higher clock speeds, yet looser timings.
While we didn't have much luck with overclocking, the out of the box performance is very strong considering the amount of RAM we're dealing with. Sure, Super Talent could've released an 1800MHz DDR kit that could achieve around 2000MHz DDR, but at least this way we're guaranteed to hit those speeds.
While we don't have the price on the actual Super Talent kit as yet, just going off other kits which follow similar speeds and timings, you'd be looking at a tad over $500; between $510 and $530 would be the best guess. Compared to 6GB kits it's more than double the price with 6GB kits carrying more aggressive timings coming in under $200 with ease.
While its overall memory speed should be no faster than a 6GB kit, depending on what you're using, the extra RAM could certainly speed things up. While for less you could buy two 6GB kits and fill all your RAM banks up, it's an option a lot of people prefer not to take as filling up all your banks can making achieving the stock speeds harder.
Super Talent are offering us a really nice amount of memory at a really good speed. For enthusiasts who don't want to sacrifice the amount of memory they have for speed, this is a fantastic option. I think it's also safe to say that it'll be a while before we see companies offer speeds higher than this when it comes to 4GB modules.
Super Talent hasn't had to resort to active cooling or insane heat spreaders to achieve some great speeds on a 12GB kit. If you've got the money and want 12GB without going down the path of 1600MHz DDR modules, this is a really fantastic option.
