Sisoft Sandra 2005 is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are, again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance. Higher numbers represent better performance in memory bandwidth.
Results: A slight difference in bandwidth is observed when testing the buffered memory, but a more significant difference is noted when looking at the unbuffered data throughput. Going from PC2-5400 to PC2-6000 allows the unbuffered memory performance in increase ten percent.
Everst 2.0 is a professional system information, diagnostics and benchmarking program for Win32 platforms. It extracts details of all components of the PC. It also tests the actual read and write speeds of your memory giving a fairly accurate look of true memory performance.
Results: Everest shows roughly a 100MB/Sec increase in memory bandwidth for both read and write speeds.
Science Mark 2.0 is an attempt to put the truth behind benchmarking. In an attempt to model real world demands and performance, ScienceMark 2.0 is a suite of high-performance benchmarks that realistically stress system performance without architectural bias. All of our testing was completed on the 32 Bit Final benchmark version that is dated March 21st 2005.
Results: Sciencemark like the additional bandwidth and the Kingston HyperX PC2-6000 memory takes the win by just over 200 points.
Now let’s move on to some gaming benchmarks and Super Pi!
