GeIL PC 3200 Value DDR RAM
Page 3 Performance
Performance when dealing with memory
can be looked at from a few aspects. First and foremost is speed or the
ability to make the PC perform well. Second and less thought of is
reliability or how stable is this product can. We are going to try and
cover both of these very important aspects and give a good expectation
of the GeIL product. What we will do first is compare GeIL's performance
against a few competitors. Now keep in mind some of these products are
performance / High priced memory. The reason we use these products to
compare is so you can really see what you are paying for. Is the Value
product of GeIL more then adequate performance wise when compared to the
higher priced performance stuff. We will be using some synthetic
benchmarks along with real world usage / game play to measure the
performance in the portion..
Modular test benchmark
PassMark is a benchmarking software company that has some really great tools. We are using the PerformenceTest 6.0 for this set of results the software is very easy to use and is a great comparison utility for new products.
As you can see from our results GeIL did not perform the best but we did not expect that the focus of these tests where to look at a products expected to perform better and to see it the cost conscious consumer would do alright by purchasing this product. We compared the GeIl Value RAM to some Low Latency OCZ memory along with some Value 1 gig chips from ADATA in all test you can see GeIL does a pretty good job of holding its Owen when using BySPD setting on our test machine. There is a significant increase when you take advantage of the high praised performance memory in Auto adjust mode but at a steep cost to the consumer.
The PC mark results helped confirm that the GeIL PC3200 2x512 sticks perform as well as the high end memory when using SPD settings what this means is if you are not planning on messing with the BIO's or if you want a decent stable set of RAM the GeIL value is a very good buy at 38 USD per 512 chip these modules perform better then expected for the price.
