PCMark05 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark05 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate results. As far as possible, PCMark05 uses public domain applications whose source code can be freely examined by any user.
PCMark05 includes 4 categorized suites for benchmarking your computer. These include CPU, Graphics, Memory and a Hard Disk Drive benchmark. In our case, we selected to run only the Memory test suite.
The PCMark memory tests reported that the Corsair XMS memory is slightly faster than the OCZ. So although once again the speed difference was not significant, it should be noted that in our tests, the OCZ memory modules produced exceptional performance and it is not easy to find memory modules that can compare with or even surpass this performance. But in this case, the Corsair modules have managed to do just that...
