The development of the new processor microarchitectures goes on and frequencies of contemporary types of DDR3 SDRAM grow as well. Is there any sense in using high-speed memory with modern Haswell processors? To answer this question, we have analyzed DDR3 frequency and timings influence on LGA 1150 platform performance.
Installing four memory modules with a total capacity of 32 GB into a system with a dual-channel memory controller hasn’t been such a big deal lately. Let’s check out a few overclocker kits from G.Skill that could fit the bill perfectly.
The new DDR3-1600 memory kits from Crucial are quite interesting for two reasons. On the one hand, these are low-profile memory modules. On the other hand, they meet the DDR3L standard requirements. But does it have its value for overclocking fans?
Corsair Dominator Platinum boasts attractive exterior, excellent characteristics and unique monitoring functionality. But at the same time, it is the most expensive overclocker DDR3 SDRAM in the market today. Let’s find out who might be the potential target group for this product.
One of the leading makers of system memory for enthusiasts updated their product line-up. We decided to check out the new memory kits from the GeIL EVO Veloce family and see how much more advanced they have become compared with the predecessors.
Today we are going to talk about memory kits from one of the leading DDR3 SDRAM makers for enthusiasts. Our roundup includes such products as Kingston HyperX Genesis KHX1600C9D3K2/8G, Kingston HyperX Genesis KHX1866C9D3K2/8GX, Kingston HyperX T1 KHX1866C9D3T1K2/8GX, Kingston HyperX T1 KHX21C11T1K2/8X and Kingston HyperX T1 KHX24C11T1K2/8X.
Processor microarchitectures continue developing, and the DDR3 SDRAM frequencies continue growing. However, does it really make sense to use high-speed memory with contemporary Ivy Bridge processors? To answer this question we analyzed the influence of memory frequency and latencies on the performance of a contemporary LGA 1155 platform.
Today we are going to compare the features and performance of five enthusiast memory kits from GeIL: GeIL Black Dragon PC3-12800 CL9, GeIL Enhance Corsa PC3-12800 CL9, GeIL EVO Corsa PC3-14900 CL10, GeIL EVO Corsa PC3-14900 CL9 and GeIL EVO TWO PC3-14900 CL9.
Sandy Bridge-E processors brought a lot of new tasks to computer enthusiasts, one of which is to choose the optimal memory for the new system. What is more important for LGA 2011 performance: the number of memory channels, memory frequency or memory timings?
At first glance Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer is regular DDR3-1600 SDRAM. However, as soon as you install it into your system and power on, you immediately understand how wrong your first impression was. It not only glows during work, but also comes with special system monitoring software.
Sandy Bridge processors set a number of tasks for computer enthusiasts, one of them being choosing the right memory. LGA1155 systems can work with DDR3-1067, DDR3-1333, DDR3-1600, DDR3-1866 and DDR3-2133, but does it really make sense to use super-fast memory in them?
G.Skill Company offered us their DDR3-2000 memory kit specially optimized for systems with AMD CPUs. Our today's article is devoted to this G.Skill product and its performance.
How greatly do DDR3 frequency and timings affect the performance of contemporary Socket AM3 systems and what will happen if we pair Phenom II X6 processor in an AMD 890 FX based mainboard with DDR3-2000 SDRAM?
The memory controller of the dual-core Clarkdale processors is seriously inferior to the integrated memory controllers of other Intel processors in terms of pure performance. We decided to check if there is a way to fix this situation by using overclocker DDR3 SDRAM.
Kingston introduced unique overclocker dual-channel DDR3 SDRAM kits working at 1.25 V and 1.35 V voltage. We couldn’t help checking out how beneficial memory like that could be in energy-efficient and overclocker platforms.
Even an experienced user may be taken aback by the diversity of dual-channel DDR3 SDRAM kits for Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3 processors. Let’s try figure out how memory frequency and timings can affect the performance of LGA1156 systems.
In our opinion DDR3-1600 SDRAM is the best choice for systems with Intel Core i7 processors in terms of price-to-performance. Therefore, we tested triple-channel 6 GB DDR3-1600 SDRAM kits from all leading memory manufacturers: A-Data, Corsair, Crucial, Geil, G.Skill, KIngmax, Kingston, Mushkin, OCZ, Patriot, Super Talent and Wintec.
Everything is great about triple-channel 6GB DDR3-1600 memory kits except the price. Let’s investigate this memory in detail and find out if this investment is justified or if there are ways of saving a few bucks without losing any of the performance.
Gilded contacts, gigantic heat-spreaders and high frequencies at only 1.65V voltage! How big of a performance boost we get from using high-frequency memory with a CPU at nominal speeds and during overclocking? Read our review to find out!
Most users believe that it doesn’t make sense to use DDR3 SDRAM in LGA775 platforms. However, this conclusion is based on the facts from the times when 2GB memory kits and Intel’s 3rd series chipsets were dominating the market. Today we are going to check out 4GB kits in a contemporary platform based on Intel P45 chipset.
