About SuperPI

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 Gauss-Legendre algorithm and is a Windows port of the program used by Yasumasa Kanada in 1995 to compute Pi to 2^32 digits.

They are all within a couple hundredth of a second with each other -- but here is what lower latency memory counts the most. The Viper II Sector 5s, running at 8-8-8-24, came up behind, but not by much. All of them were within a hair of each other, as shown in our benchmark results graph above.

About Cinebench R11.5

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 Spider-Man, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia and many more.

CINEBENCH is the perfect tool to compare CPU and graphics performance across various systems and platforms (Windows and Mac OS X).

Our run of Cinebench R11.5 proved to be quite interesting. While one may think rendering performance will benefit from high bandwidth memory running on a high divider, our CPU based test actually preferred lower latency RAM. The G.SKILL Ripjaws scored 5.37 points, while the Pi series came in very close with a score of 5.36 running at 7-10-10-28 1T. Our Patriot Viper II Sector 5, with higher latencies compared to the Ripjaws, still scored a relatively decent 5.31. Meanwhile, OpenGL rendering appeared to be latency invariant -- both the Patriot and G.SKILL DDR3-1600 RAM posted identical results.
