Sisoft; Sandra 2005 SR1:
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: The OCZ Gold VX PC-3200 memory kit performed very well against Muskin Black Level II memory at the same timings. When we overclocked our modules and compared them to Mushkin Redline XP4000 modules at DDR500 the results were nearly identical.
Everest Version 2.01 Final:
Everst 2.01 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 testing once again showed similar results to Sandra across the board. Both the Write and Unbuffered score on OCZ’s Voltage Extreme memory modules proved to be impressive in testing.
ScienceMark 2.0 Final:
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 2 showed similar scores at PC-3200 between the Muskin and OCZ modules, but once at DDR-500 OCZ’s Gold VX started to take a slight lead.
Now let’s move on to some gaming benchmarks and Super Pi!
