Memory Bandwidth Testing:
Everest Version 1.1:
Everest 1.1 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 to give a fairly accurate look of true memory performance.
ScienceMark 2.0 Beta:
ScienceMark 2.0 is different from other benchmarks, in a sense the benchmark tests a series of different memory bandwidth algorithms. To top it all off the assembly source for these copy routines is available online to help assure the benchmark is not biased towards any one platform in particular.
Results:It’s fairly obvious that the AMD A64 processors with the memory controller on the CPU currently are tops in the memory bandwith benchmarking. The AMD A64 3800+ has the best memory bandwidth and makes sense since the 940-Pin A64 FX’s require the use of registered modules. Since registered modules require registry chips it does impact the memory bandwidth slightly.
