High-end performance that won’t hurt your wallet.
The below benchmarks were done using our regular testbed of Intel Core i7-2600K on a Gigabyte P67A-UD7 with a Zotac GTX 580 AMP! Edition; a Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB HDD running Windows 7 Ultimate provided the basis and all of this was powered by a Cooler Master 1200W Silent Pro Gold PSU.
I specifically used SiS Sandra 2011’s Aggregate Memory Performance benchmark as it gives a realistic representation of bandwidth usage. For testing the TwinMOS TwiSTER 4GB DDR-2133 memory kit, I compared it with the recently reviewed G.Skill RipjawsX and the Kingston HyperX T1 4GB DDR-2133 kits.
The G.Skill Ripjaws X performed exceptionally well, and of the three, the RipjawsX and the TwiSTER are equally priced. That said, of the two, only TwinMOS is available in UAE as it’s sold in a lot of retail shops. Next comes the Kingston HyperX T1 that performs 11% better than the TwinMOS TwiSTER at stock speeds of 1333MHz and 18% better while overclocked to 2134MHz. The kicker here is that the HyperX T1 costs 26% more than the TwiSTER, at AED 100 more to be precise. Running Prime95 and other gaming benchmarks for the better part of a day didn’t turn up any crashes.
All said and done, the performance difference between TwiSTER and its rivals is negligible in real world situations, where games won’t have a significant increase in fps, if at all, and encoding & decoding videos and songs will take just the same as it all depends on your CPU and GPU. The TwinMOS TwiSTER provides a budget-friendly solution to high-end ram as it can be overclocked very easily and will remain steadfast no matter what you throw at it.
