BENCHMARKING


3DMARK 2001SE v330 BENCHMARK (DIRECTX 7 & 8.1)



Through 3DMARK, Corsair PC3200 sample did pull out a very very minor win. Most of the difference could easily be factored into the margin of error for this particular program. The difference will not be seen by the naked eye while gaming.

 

 

 

 

 

GLEXCESS v1.2V OPENGL BENCHMARK


GLEXCESS to me has always been a reliable and unbiased synthetic benchmarking program which thankfully hasn't had any videocard chip manufacturer unfairly optimizing to provide untrue results.



Mirroring the DirectX benchmarking through 3DMARK, GLEXCESS practically seeing the two sets of memory to be exactly the same. Also, OpenGL rendering is more videocard dependent which could definitely explain the results seen above.

 

GUNMETAL 2 BENCHMARK (DX 8.1 & DX9)


Gunmetal is an absolute brutal benchmark that will take a full-blown power system and make it look like a 486DX. Utilizing full DX8.1 effects and one DX9 vertex shader, this benchmark truly tests the gaming capability of your current rig.



Gunmetal more or less benchmarked like there was no memory difference. This could easily be explained through the benchmark stressing the videocard independently from the rest of the system.


I told you it was a tough benchmark. The only difference is the extra $50 you will have left in your pocket if you bought the PMI.
