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 Intel Core i7-6950X and Core i7-6900K were tested on the same exact board and the Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3000MHz memory kit with CL15 timings was the same. Due to this fact, it’s not a big shocker that the memory performance being very close, but we were shocked to see that the 6900K was slower in most the tests as we weren’t sure if having more than 8-cores would really impact memory bandwidth since they were running at lower clock speeds.
