Mushkin XP2-8500 DDR2 2GB Kit

Sandra, 3DMark06 & CS:Source

SiSoft Sandra, 3DMark06 and CS:Source Resultd

For this set of tests I used several different applications. SiSoft Sandra, Futuremark's 3DMark06 and CounterStrike: Source - Steam Stress Test. Again all tests were done three times to ensure accuracy.

3DMark06 was set to 1024x768, like all 3D mark tests done in our Labs, with all other settings left as default.
CounterStrike:Source was set to 1280 x 1024, 0 AA, Bilinear Filtering and all world / model details at full.

SiSoft Bandwidth SiSoft Latency

3D Mark 06 Source FPS

As you can see, the general trend continues, with the high speed - stock timing settings giving the best performance, with very little difference between the stock and lowered timings. There is also a clear relationship between the Everest Latency test and the SiSoft Latency tests, with the SiSoft test being pretty much exactly 13ns higher for each value.

Is the Mushkin XP2-8500 DDR2 2GB Kit worth outlaying your hard earned cash on? Read on to find out.
