The OCZ PC2-5400 memory kit was mainly tested with an ASUS A6JA. There were
no in-compatibility issues, either alone or combined with the stock 1GB DDR-533
memory. All tests performed under the same enviroment, using the same benchmark
utilities. After installing the memory module, we checked its preferences with
the latest available version of Everest Ultimate Edition 2006. The memory runs
at 333Mhz with 5-5-5-15 cache latency.
Everest Ultimate Edition 2006 gives us more info about the CPU's current FSB clock/speed. Due to higher FSB speed, we expect higher performance, our test results will unveil if that true or not...
- Benchmark Software
At the PC Mark 05, the 1GB OCZ PC2-5400 had the best score with 2751 mark.
Everest Ultimate Edition 2006 offers many tests, inclujding read/write/copy and latency. The OCZ module had the best read performance, while the 2GB PC2-4200 (OCZ+Nanya), showed better write, copy and lower latency...
Performance Test 6 includes a MemoryMark that shows the memory's overall performance. The results showed that the stock 1GB Nanya PC-4200 had the best mark, probably due to its lower timings...
RightMark offers much information about memory modules, combined with some tests. As the synthetic tests showed, OCZ PC2-5400 had the higher reading, while the 2GB of RAM seems to have higher writing performance. During the "Performance Tests", the 2GB PC2-4200 performed better with higher average and max MB/sec.
Sisoft Sandra 2007 Lite is the latest version of the famous benchmarking software. The results showed that the 2GB will benefit your laptop's performance.
SuperPI is the best known utility to stretch CPUs and test its overall performance. As the results showed, the performance difference is very low, up to 1/2 secs...
- Gaming Performance
F.E.A.R has one of the most demanding graphic engine. At maximum quality settings, all memory configurations showed equal performance (22FPS average). The 2GB of RAM didn't seemed to affect gaming performance at all.
Same results happened also with Heroes of Might And Magic V (v1.1). Using FRAPS, we got an average of 19 fps, at 1280x800 resolution with best quality settings.
