..:: SuperPi ::..
SuperPi is another benchmark I’m sure you’re all familiar with. Here, we begin to see that additional bandwidth being put to good use. Tests were run at computations of two, four and eight million digits. In the less intensive benchmark of two million, there’s a three second boost for the 1066MHz RAM. As the intensity of the calculations continues to rise, so does the performance boost of 1066MHz over the default speed of 533MHz. The four million benchmark sees a 10 second difference, while in the eight million benchmark the 1066MHz RAM surpasses the 533MHz RAM by 25 seconds.
..:: Cinebench 9.5 ::..
Cinebench is an extremely intensive CAD benchmark that relies heavily on graphics and processor performance. Initially I wasn’t expecting much of a boost to come from upping the RAM frequencies, and the results show that my suspicions were correct. There is little to no difference in performance across the board for all tested frequencies. Clearly, this is a type of application where it would be better to go for performance scaling of all frequencies.
