Talking [review] 2GB Memory Kit Comparison Test @

2GB of memory was seen as an unnecessary luxury just a few months ago, with most enthusiasts more than happy enough to use 1GB. Something happened recently to change all that, and that something is called Battlefield 2. Whilst most games still run at their full potential with a single GB of memory, Battlefield 2 can improve in performance by as much as 30% with an extra GB of memory installed.

Plenty of memory is also a priority if you work with ultra high resolution images in Photoshop, or do an insane amount of multitasking. Dual core CPUs are now available that make it possible to simply Alt+Tab out of a game, and continue working with the other core with no noticeable slowdown, provided you have enough memory of course. Regardless of what you use your PC for, if you find it using the page file all too often, its time to start looking at a 2GB matched pair.
A comparison between:
  • Corsair PC4000 TwinX 2048MB C2 Platinum
  • Crucial Ballistix PC4000 2GB Kit
  • GeIL Value series PC3200 CAS 3 2GB Dual Channel Kit
  • Kingston Hyper X PC3200 2GB kit
  • Mushkin 2GB XP4000 3-4-3-8 Dual Kit (2x1GB)
  • OCZ EL DDR PC-4000 Gold Edition Dual Channel 2GB kit
  • Patriot PC3200 Low Latency 2GB Dual Channel Kit

personal note: I think using Abit AN8 Fatal1ty SLI motherboard for the review limited the max oc of each 2GB memory pair, would of been nice to see it on DFI NF4 board
