3DMARK 2001SE v330 BENCHMARKING
Everyone knows this DirectX 8.1 benchmark. Still to this day, it is one of the most used benchmarks worldwide.
At stock settings and timing, the memory performs just like the rest, but when set to DDR433 or even DDR440, it doesn't match up to bad even when compared to a score at DDR520 at 3-8-4-4 timings from the PQI PC3200.
PCMARK 2004 MEMORY BENCHMARKING
PCMark2004 is a good basic benchmarking program that output simple and easily understandable numbers to compare while tweaking your system.
Lower latency timings did seem to affect PCMark's memory score while at DDR400. At DDR433, there is a quite a difference and is noticeable through Windows load times and overall program execution.
SISOFT SANDRA 2003 MEMORY BANDWIDTH BENCHMARK
This can also be applied to Sandra's Read-Only memory benchmark. The memory is on par with the rest of the memory in the market that is capable of DDR433 even at 3-8-4-4 timings.
