Total Value Rating
The TVR graph is the TPR score divided by the price of the memory kit. The price of the memory kit is based on the list price of the model on Newegg.com. In the event the kit isn't listed, it will be based on the U.S. $ MSRP given to us by the manufacturer.
In the event we can't source a price from either, the product will not receive a TVR rating. As with our TPR graph, the amount of memory kits on the list will grow over time and the price of the model won't change from what it was when first reviewed. For this reason the U.S. $ price that the kit is based off will be included next to the name of the model.
In the event you want to find the TVR rating yourself based on the current price, all you have to do is simply divide the TPR number by the list price.
TVR numbers are rounded to the nearest whole number; 100.3 will be 100; 100.8 will be 101 and 100.5 will be rounded down to 100.
Due to the benchmarks not making real use of that extra memory, we see with the price increase the overall value from a benchmarking/performance perspective is quite poor. Of course, it should be mentioned that you don't buy 4GB modules for benchmarking.
Priced at just under $200 US ($199.99 to be exact), the G.Skill Ripjaws kit is a really nice kit for the P55 user that's looking for more memory than the norm. The timings aren't great and the fact that it's a 2T kit versus 1T one means that when it comes to looking at raw memory performance, it's not as strong. What you don't see here, though, is the faster loading times that are associated with an 8GB kit versus a 4GB one.
We've been impressed with the Ripjaws kits in the past and this is another great addition to the series. It's not super high speed, nor are the timings as aggressive as other kits; but it's well priced and being a kit of two 4GB modules means it serves a purpose outside of benchmarking.
This is a nice kit for users who don't want to fill up all the banks on their P55 motherboard and don't need the aggressive timings associated with high end 4GB ones. For most an 8GB CL9 kit is going to offer a better computing experience than a 4GB CL7 one.
