Kingston HyperX H20 6GB DDR-2000 Review

When I was in charge of DriverHeaven I wrote a scripted benchmark which was not only used to help users ascertain system specific performance levels but was useful in reviews to accurately measure performance in key areas. Leading tech sites such as Madshrimps, Hardware Canucks, Benchmark Reviews and Hardocp used my benchmark in their reviews also.

This version of the script has been thoroughly tested on Adobe Photoshop CS5 and CS4 and is compatible with Photoshop 7. It is important to document however that different versions of Photoshop give different end results. Adobe have been fine tuning the program over the years and enhancing specific filters and algorithms for better performance (some filters were rewritten during the CS2 time period). This means ultimately that comparing times with users running other versions of Photoshop is not going to give consistent results.

Lower times are better

At 1333mhz, we recorded a time of 510.4 seconds which dropped by 8 seconds when we pushed the memory to 2000mhz. This was further reduced by 2.5 seconds when we increased to our final speed of 2350mhz. These are impressive results and show the potential of the memory bandwidth in a more serious environment.
