Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 in Real-Life Apps
Digit Life see how the Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 compares in Real-Life Apps:
In order to preserve the principle of reducing memory frequency precisely by half, we ran first tests with DDR3-1600 memory (800 MHz), even though our memory modules could do better. However, we witnessed an interesting effect: having compared results of the QX9770 processor with DDR3-1800 and DDR3-1600 memory, we found out that the latter turned out to perform... better. Probably owing to better "synchronism" of memory and FSB frequencies. For that matter we did a "silent update" of QX9770 results in this review. So if you want to see where QX9770 wins another point or two, you are welcome.
So, the second round of tests was run with DDR3-800 memory. Some of our readers may note that such memory makes no practical sense at all. But in this case we are not interested in practical sense, we just recreate a situation, when CPU's access to memory is artificially slowed down twofold, so our choice is well justified. It goes without saying that we use our Corsair CMX3X1024-1800C7DIN memory modules, we just modified their operating frequency in BIOS.
