DDR2-667 Test Mode

Now we will see how the DDR2 SDRAM modules behave at 667MHz frequency. OCZ PC2 4200 Enhanced Bandwidth Platinum memory couldn’t work at this frequency with its default timings, so we had to manually select 5-5-5-12 timings for it.

Synthetic tests come first:

 

Corsair CM2X512-5300C4PRO

GEIL PC2-5300

OCZ PC2 4200 EB Platinum

OCZ PC2 4300

The Corsair CM2X512-5300C4PRO memory seems to be overall the best in this test, although the OCZ PC2 4200 Enhanced Bandwidth Platinum has the best result in the memory bandwidth test of SiSoft Sandra 2005 with enabled memory prefetch and buffering.

Corsair’s CM2X512-5300C4PRO modules provide the highest performance at 667MHz frequency. The sticks from GeIL and PQI have good results against the competitors, too.
