Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4GB DDR3-1333 Memory Kit
November 12, 2008

Testing:

The test system listed earlier in the review was used for the execution of all benchmarks, which include tests from these packages:

Lavalys Everest Ultimate Edition
PassMark Performance Test v6.1 Memory
FutureMark 3DMark Vantage
World in Conflict In-Game Benchmark

For comparison purposes, the Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4GB DDR3-1333 memory kit was tested head-to-head with two other DDR3 kits, both of which happen to be rated for 1600MHz. The list below details the basic specifications of the five configurations to be tested.

Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4GB PC3-10600 @ 1333MHz, 6-6-6-20, 1.80V
Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4GB PC3-10600 @ 1600MHz, 8-8-8-24, 1.80V
G.Skill Pi Series 4GB PC3-12800 @ 1600MHz, 7-7-7-18, 1.90V
Kingston HyperX 2GB PC3-12800 @ 1600MHz, 9-9-9-27, 1.90V
Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4GB PC3-10600 @ 1700MHz, 6-6-6-20, 1.90V

These five configurations represent each of the three kits at their stock speeds, as well as the Crucial kit running overclocked to 1600MHz and 1700MHz.

Lavalys Everest Ultimate Edition:

The memory tests from Lavalys Everest Ultimate Edition were the first benchmarks to be executed. Four sets of results are provided, including memory read speed (in MB/s), memory write speed (in MB/s), memory copy speed (in MB/s), and memory latency (in ns). Higher values are better for read, write, and copy, while lower values are better for latency. The chart below shows the results achieved, and while the Crucial kit can't quite compete at its stock speed, once overclocked to match the other kits things get much more interesting.

PassMark Performance Test v6.1 Memory:

PassMark Performance Test v6.1 was executed next. Only the memory portion of this suite of tests was used, and the chart below shows results for the memory read uncached speed (MB/s), read cached speed (MB/s), write speed (MB/s), and the composite Memory Mark (unitless). Higher numbers are better for all results, and here we see that at 1600MHz the Crucial kit beats the other two kits designed to run at that speed.
