TwinMOS 256MB DDR400 Memory Review - Benchmarking

JEDEC have only just approved the PC2700 memory standard, and we are already seeing a lot of memory manufacturers coming out with their DDR400 modules even though JEDEC are still in the works of approving it. Asher "Acid" Moses takes a look at one such PC3200 module from up and coming Taiwanese company, TwinMOS. Does it have what it takes to compete with the well known memory brands in overclocking tests? Read on and find out!

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.

 

 

As we expected, both modules performed virtually identically in all tests performed. This is due to the fact that they were both running at the same speed and had identical CAS timings. Where we will see a difference between the two modules is in our overclocking results. Who came out on top? Keep reading...
