We run the Real World tests in 1080p resolution so the focus doesn’t move to the MSI GTX 970 GAMING Twin Frozr V. This should give feedback on the small physical configuration differences such as memory timings.

As stated in our Crucial Ballistix Tactical 32GB 3000Mhz DDR4 review, we moved away from the Battlefield 4 tests to a different benchmark to get a clearer set of results. Battlefield 4 is amazing, but everything impacted the FPS, including how many players on the map, in one given location, and the risk of the C4 junkies blowing everyone up at the same time, reducing frame rate. We moved to Batman Arkham Origins, or at least the benchmark within the tool. Not quite a timedemo, but still, using the game engine and using single player dynamics. We tested in 1080p with maximum and minimum settings with vsync off.
Real World Tests
The first set of results are from the AIDA64 Engineer application using the Memory Read, Write and Copy tests. We have included a selection of other memories and their speed and timings. All settings were achieved with XMP BIOS options, including both speeds for the same modules. This test, though synthetic, is one of our favourite tests, it can give a very good idea of how the memory MHz is influencing the system.
The first set of results are clear cut. They show the slightly fast memory core speed and the tighter memory timings make the difference in performance leaving the Avexir Green out front. It’s not a massive margin form the Crucial Ballistix Sport LT White 2600Mhz, but it’s a sizable jump from the Crucial Ballistix Sport LT White 2400Mhz configuration.
