In order to compare the performance of the Crucial PC2-8500, we used two other memory modules from OCZ and Crucial.
The test results showed that at the 3 lowest frequencies, there is very little between the Crucial PC2-8500 and OCZ modules. At 1150MHz, the Crucial PC2-8500 is noticeably faster while at 1250MHz, the OCZ modules perform better. Note that the OCZ PC2-9200 FlexXLC can boost an additional 20MHz which gives higher marks at the 1250MHz speed. Overall, very good performance from the Crucial PC2-8500.
