HyperX Beast Benchmarking

SiSoftware Sandra 2013a:

Sandra needs no introduction as it is the most popular memory performance benchmark available!

HyperX Beast 64GB (8x8GB) Memory at 1600MHz CL9:

HyperX Beast 64GB (8x8GB) Memory at 2133MHz CL11:

Benchmark Results: With the Kingston HyperX Beast 64GB 2133MHz memory kit running XMP Profile #2 (1600MHz CL9 settings) we  discovered 40.24 GB/s of memory bandwidth. When the XMP Profile #1 (2133MHz CL11 settings) was enabled we saw the score improve to 47.54 GB/s. This is over a 7 GB/s improvement improvement, which is around an 18% memory bandwidth improvement!  The quad-channel powered Intel X79 platfom is a force to be reckoned with!

 

AIDA64 Extreme Edition 2.70 Beta:

AIDA64 Extreme Edition 2.70 software is an excellent benchmarking tool for looking at memory performance on any desktop PC.

HyperX Beast 64GB (8x8GB) Memory at 2133MHz CL11:

 Benchmark Results: Running AIDA64 Extreme Edition we found the read and write memory bandwidth scores to 16787MB/s and 15057MB/s at 1600MHz with CL9 timings. With the Kingston HyperX Beast memory set to 2133MHz with CL11 timings the read was 18456MB/s read and 15053MB/s write. It looks like running this high-capacity kit at 2133MHz helped in the read and copy memory benchmarks, but the write score didn’t go up at all. 

Why the big difference between the AIDA64 and Sandra memory bandwidth scores? AIDA64 uses single-threaded memory bandwidth tests, so it will only use a single thread to move data to/from the memory modules. While Sandra uses multiple threads, so it’s a multi-threaded memory bandwidth benchmark.

 

MaxxMEM2 v1.99:

MaxxMEM is another memory benchmark that is starting to become more popular these days.

Benchmark Results: As you can see running the HyperX Beast 64GB kit at 2133MHz showed improvements across the board when compared to 1600MHz.
