Because my test system has a processor of 2.6GHz and the test system of the Ballistix Tracer's were run on a 2.4GHz system I wanted to test the ADATA set at those speeds to get a truer comparison. As you know PCMark05 compares all components of the system. So what I did was downclock my processor to 300x8 (2.4GHz) and re-ran the tests at 400MHz with timings of 5-5-5-12 to truly see which set had the higher speeds.
Now that things are even you can see that the scores are very close, but the ADATA still has a little bit of a speed edge over the Ballistix Tracers. Keep in mind, though, that we had to loosen the timings to get the comparison, as the ADATA nativly runs at timings of 4-4-4-12. Thus, it would be faster overall.
