And the gaming tests demonstrate a completely different state of things. DDR3-1600 SDRAM with 7-6-6-18 timings (it is the nominal work mode for OCZ PC3-12800 Platinum Dual Channel EB Edition) provides slightly higher fps rate than DDR2-1200 in all games. However, any other DDR3 SDRAM modifications participating in this test get defeated by high-speed DDR2.
We would also like to point out that unfortunately, DDR3-1333 with 5-7-5-15 timings cannot compete with DDR3-1600 SDRAM featuring higher bandwidth. We see this tendency in all the tests, including 3D games. In other words, overclockers will undoubtedly find memory modules built with Micron chips more useful than the modules built with Elpida chips.
