3DMARK 2001SE v330 BENCHMARKING
Everyone knows this DirectX 8.1 benchmark. Still to this day, it is one of the most used benchmarks worldwide.
As you can see above, a quick way to add some punch to your benchmarking and overall video performance is to add some capable memory. Don't pay the same price for low latency DDR400, invest your money into some affordable DDR500 and get your front side bus pumping if you want an overall boost.
PCMARK 2004 MEMORY BENCHMARKING
PCMark2004 is a good basic benchmarking program that output simple and easily understandable numbers to compare while tweaking your system.
Again you can see just how much of a performance increase you can get even though this memory is only CAS 3. All the DDR400 results are with low latency timings and the numbers don't lie, this memory and its capability for the same price is easily overshadowing them by quite a large margin.
SISOFT SANDRA 2003 MEMORY BANDWIDTH BENCHMARK
Again the number read exactly the same as the other benchmarks.
Read bandwidth is up over 1000mb/sec when this memory is used to its full potential.
