Patriot Viper 6GB 1600MHz DDR3 Kit
When most shoppers compare system memory kits, they often look for the highest speeds for the best price. Everyone is different, but overclockers and performance enthusiasts generally aim for the best combination of low-latency high-speed RAM they can get find. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the performance of a top-speed triple-channel product for the Intel Core i7 platform. The Patriot Viper 6GB 1600MHz DDR3 memory kit PVT36G1600ELK will be compared against several other products and benchmarked for bandwidth and gaming performance. Are the higher speeds worth the money, or can this memory kit overclock to their level? By the end of this article, you'll have your answer.
System memory is one of the most over-looked hardware components in computer systems. When it comes to 32-bit Operating Systems like Windows XP and Vista, only 4GB of memory can be mapped and utilized. However with 64-bit version of the Windows Operating System becoming gaining popularity, only the physical limitations of the motherboard can restrict the user-mode virtual address space. So with applications demanding greater memory overhead, once again it has better to use as much memory as can be installed into the system.
But not all memory is made the same; and even memory of the same speed can have different consumer targets. Patriot offers something for everyone, and there isn't a desktop computer made that they don't offer an upgrade for. Casual users can take advantage of their warranty and support, as well as getting tips from their support forum for better performance. Enthusiasts and overclockers can match the memory kit that best suits their needs. Even gamers are given special attention, even though system memory has very little impact on a games performance.
