Memory Bandwidth Benchmarks

SiSoftware Sandra 2016 SP3 Memory Bandwidth: link

SiSoftware Sandra 2016 is a utility, which includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, mobile devices and networks. This test has been popular for CPU and memory benchmarks for well over a decade and it is one of the easiest benchmarks out there to run.

AIDA64 5.80 Memory & Cache Benchmark: link

AIDA64 is an industry-leading system information tool, loved by PC enthusiasts around the world, which not only provides extremely detailed information about both hardware and installed software, but also helps users diagnose issues and offers benchmarks to measure the performance of the computer.

Memory Bandwidth Results Summary: The We tested the Intel Core i7-7700K, Core i3-7350K and the Core i7-6700K on the same exact Gigabyte Aorus Z270X-Gaming 5 motherboard with Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3000MHz memory kit with CL15 timings, so it’s not a big shocker that the memory performance is very close. We were a little shocked to see that the memory bandwidth was reported as fastest of any dual-channel platform in Sandra 2016 SP3, but we’ll take it!

    Any reason you only compared the chip with i7s? Why not do the same benchmarks with CPUs in a similar price range? (ie i5-6400)

    • Nathan Kirsch

      Because Intel never sent us any Core i5’s for testing, we didn’t buy any and the money isn’t there to go back and buy them.

    Found another typo. You call the 1080 a 6GB card on page one.
    Just trying to be helpful. No doubt hours alone doing the hard work testing this thing and writing the article is going to lead to a few typos without some help.

    (add a zero to “Core i7-770K”, p11, final thoughts etc)

      fixed! TY

        Lack of sleep after CES 2017 coverage. 😉

    I’ve a concern with your review regarding the i3 and hypertheading. You have the belief that this is the first in the range to have it, but the i3 has always had this feature and it was and still is the i5 that does not. I had a sandybridge i3 2100 with hypertheading enabled on it.

      That is very odd indeed. Even the very first desktop i3 had hyperthreading. It is sad when the very first sentence has such a glaring error. Fake news?

      Dumbest thing I’ve read all week. I can’t take this article seriously now. I sincerely hope it gets fixed.

  • pretty sweet, i say, lightly threaded, should mean something, ” to me ” it means one thread, internet, second thread, my data base for financials, that is all i need, and what i am going to use, with the small form factor, easy on budget power supply, and taking advantage of the z270 platform, thanks legit, enjoyed your review. , i test my load now on task manager, and look at how my cores are handling data, and still programs are not very good at this thready thing. 🙂 cheers.

    • i have made my second read of this article, ” enjoyed much ” my take away is, the die, is half of the full die, the lowest cost 2 core, at 51 watts, looks to be the real champ, for price / performance, tossing in the other platforms helps, a keeper performance test ” imo ” i am going to build and use two of these processors 7300 for a sff case, with the m2 stick, and change out all my stuff, good bye x58, hello mini 7700 . good article, shows the power of 2 cores,
