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, DDR500 does bring an overall gaming performance
increase to your new system. Although the HyperX score was a little
behind that found while benchmarking the Corsair TwinX PC4000 pro, the
difference falls within the 3DMARK score margin of error.
PCMARK 2002 MEMORY BENCHMARKING
PCMark2002 is a good basic benchmarking program that output simple
and easily understandable numbers to compare while tweaking your system.
PCMark2002 synthetic memory benchmarking also had the
HyperX within the same range as the competing DDR500 from Corsair. But
overall, you can see the difference between the low latency PC3200 memory
and the PC4000 memory at 3-8-4-4 timings.
