AMD 8GB 1600 MHz Performance Edition Memory Kit Review

Sandra, H264 HD and 3DMark11 Benchmarks

DDR3 Memory speeds 1333Mhz and 1600Mhz

It will be interesting to see if clocking speeds have an impact on system performance with the AMD Performance RAM. We took the memory kit and ran two different clock speeds on the system. On this page you will see the results of the Performance Edition dual channel memory kit at 1333 (default) and 1600 Mhz

SISofware Sandra 2012 SP4

Below we have two screen shots of the memory bandwidth test results. The first screen shot is the memory clocked at 8-9-8-24 1600Mhz 1.65v and the second is 8-8-8-24 1333Mhz 1.5v respectively.



The first set of results show the 1600Mhz setting results output 11.8GB/s


Sandra 1333Mhz Results

The second set of results show the 1333Mhz setting results output 11.76GB/s

Results: Sanda 2012 is a great way to get a metric for how your memory is performing. With the common memory speeds of 1333Mhz and 16000Mhz we had nearly identical results. This is not always the case with memory kits but in the case of the Performance Edition memory it is this time. The test and settings were tried several times and the results were very similar.

3DMark 11 is another great well known way of benchmarking a system. 3DMark 11 uses a native DirectX 11 engine designed to make use of all that is DirectX 11.

Here we will see the default settings that are being used for this 3D Mark 11 test.

Below we have a screen shots of our results of the 1600Mhz and 1333Mhz clockings respectively. We are looking at the overall 3D Mark Score and the Physics score


Image Description


Results: Our overall scores with 3DMark were near mirror images of each other once again at 3598 and 3597 scores. Physics scores once again show a small performance increase score of 3581 to 3568. As you can see the performance increase from 1333Mhz to 1600Mhz is minimal


Aliens Versus Preditors is a PC game that has built in benchmarking. We have ran the DirectX 11 module to see how the meomry module runs under 1333Mhz and 1600Mhz. Below we have a screen shot and results from the testing. Once again the 1600Mhz has a narrow performance bump from the 1333Mhz settings.
