Patriot Extreme Performance Gamer Series- DDR3 memory...

Today we're going to look at the Black edition ready Patriot Extreme Gaming series DDR3 memory which is made especially for AMD. When we say black edition, it means it has the capacity to be overclocked and can handle such stress. This high performance DDR3 memory has neat features:

  • Extreme performance PC3-12800 (1600MHz)
  • Low Latency (7-7-7-20) and low voltage at 1.7 volts
  • It has lightweight aluminum heat spreaders
  • 100% Tested and Verified
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • RoHS Compliant
Now, the lower the latency, the faster these memory works. For comparison purposes, you can change the latency to 9-9-9-24 and increase the voltage to 1.8 volts. So as not to confuse you guys, 7-7-7-20 is faster than 9-9-9-24, the purpose of doing this to allow you to compare it with other RAMs from Corsair, OCZ or Kingston.

To jump the gun, as for the DD3 Latency comparison results(which is at 9-9-9-24 and at 1.8 volts) this memory (Patriot G-series) has a result of 51.3 nano seconds, while Corsair XMS3-DHX is at 51.5 ns, OCZ AMD Platinum Edition 51.5 ns, and the fastest Kingston HyperX which is at 49.6 ns(all memory modules are at 9-9-9-24 except for Kingston which is at 9-9-9-27 and all are the same with 1.8 volts). In here, the lower the nano seconds, the faster.

For the Overall 3dMark Vantage ScoresPatriot G-series scored highest P11713, Corsair XMS3-DHX-P11699, OCZ AMD Platinum Edition-P11716, and Kingston HyperX-P11684.

For the Write Results at (Megabytes/seconds): Patriot G-series - 6804 MB/sCorsair XMS3-DHX - 6806 MB/sOCZ AMD Platinum Edition - 6780 MB/s, and Kingston HyperX - 6804 MB/s.

The totality of this RAM is not bad. Considering the latest pricing as of the date of this article is at $109.99 at Newegg.
