G. Skill Pi Black DDR3-1600 6 Gig Triple Channel Memory Kit ReviewPosted on 2009-02-13 12:58:49 by Thomas De Maesschalck
I've been running DDR3 on my Core 2 Quad systems for some time now and I've been very pleased with the overall results of its performance. Now, with the introduction of the new Intel Core i7 platform with its Triple Channel memory controller along with its QPI (Quick Path Interconnect) built into the CPU itself instead of the memory controller being intergraded into the Northbridge, it's going to bring overall memory performance to new performance heights for the competition to try and meet.
Today, we're going to be running a 6 gig kit of G. Skill's new high performance low voltage DDR3-1600 Tri-Channel Pi-Black memory through its paces on my newly acquired Intel Core i7 to see just how well it performs. Needless to say, I'm extremely excited to get into this review as it will be my first time running the Core i7 system as well as my first time running a G. Skill product. So, enough of the chit chat and let's get on with the review.
