Frequency Performance: Gaming

When testing with Unreal Tournament 3 we found the highest clocked configuration (DDR3-1600) to be significantly faster than the rest. At 1920x1200 the DDR3-1600 memory delivered 12% more performance than its 1333MHz counterpart.

Quake Wars performance was relatively flat, with a mere 6fps difference between the fastest and the slowest configuration at 1920x1200.

The performance difference in FarCry 2 was even smaller, with just 3fps separating the slowest and the fastest tested configurations at 1920x1200.
