Sisoft Sandra XII just came just over a month ago and we have started to include it in out benchmarking, so our readers would be able to compare their modules to this kit if they are using the just released version of Sandra! With Sandra XII you can now easily compare the performance of the tested device with its speed and its (published) power (TDP)! Sandra XII also has SSE4 (Intel) and SSE4A (AMD) benchmark code-paths, which is great for those of you testing next-generation AMD & Intel chips.
Results: Sandra XII showed higher memory bandwidth in the OCZ kit, but the 117MB/Sec difference is only a 1.4% performance improvement.
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: In Sciencemark 2 the memory bandwidth test showed a 0.3% performance difference, but this time it was in favor of Corsair. So far after Everest, Sandra and Sciencemark memory bandwidth tests it seems like a tie when it comes to stock performance. This makes sense, because both of the memory kits use the same exact Micron D9 memory IC’s.
