CINEBENCH is a real-world cross-platform test suite that evaluates your computer’s performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on MAXON’s award-winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Iron Man 3, Oblivion, Life of Pi or Prometheus and many more.
CINEBENCH is the perfect tool to compare CPU and graphics performance across various systems and platforms (Windows and OS X). And best of all: It’s completely free.
In Cinebench the Crucial Ballistix Sport 2400MHz kit turned 158.44FPS and the Kingston kit hit 160FPS and such a small difference can be nothing more than small variations in the benchmark runs.
Super PI is a computer program that calculates Pi to a specified number of digits after the decimal point—up to a maximum of 32 million. It uses the Gauss–Legendre algorithm and is a Windows port of the program used by Yasumasa Kanada in 1995 to compute pi to 232 digits.
SuperPI is a single core benchmark and the shorter runs are usually pretty close and as you can see here the 1m run results in just a 0.3 second difference. Scale up to 32m and the Crucial Kit scores a 437.523 about 37 seconds behind the Kingston kit. As far as it goes ram kits with different speeds and timings can be used to give you an idea of each speeds performance but you don’t judge a 2400MHz kit based on a faster kits performance. You have to walk that fine line where you judge based on what the kits specified ratings are and the expected performance.
