Default G.SKILL Trident 2x1GB DDR3-1600MHz Memory Review

When it came to testing for the G.Skill Trident set, I was quite surprised. While only 2GB in capacity, they did perform quite well. They were only slightly behind the 4GB sets in the majority of the tests and when it came to the memory-only tests, they ran nearly equal. Their downfall comes in the multitasking field. If you look at the Task Manager screenshot, you will notice that while running Vista Ultimate in an idle state with no programs or apps open, other than what is running in the task bar from start up, there is already 735MB of our 2048MB memory used. If you plan on multitasking then the 2GB of the Trident series is probably not for you; I would get the 4GB kit instead. Other than for multitasking, this set performed quite well and faired better than I expected. Even though it was behind the other sets when run at stock, the difference was marginal. I was surprised to see that the sets with higher latencies perform better than when run at the latencies of the Trident series.
