SuperPI has become a utility to benchmark modern systems. In August 1995, the calculation of pi up to 4,294,960,000 decimal digits was succeeded by using a supercomputer at the University of Tokyo. The program was written by D.Takahashi and he collaborated with Dr. Y.Kanada at the computer center, the University of Tokyo. This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environments such as Windows NT and Windows 95 and called Super PI.
The software offers up to 32M calculations of PI numbers. For all memory settings, we tested up to 2M calculations.
In this test, the OCZ PC2-8500 SLI proved faster than the GSkill FP2-8500 module, and in some cases, the difference with the Crucial PC2-8500 modules was only slight.
