Memory Bandwidth Benchmarks

SiSoftware Sandra 2016 SP3 Memory Bandwidth: link

SiSoftware Sandra 2016 is a utility, which includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, mobile devices and networks. This test has been popular for CPU and memory benchmarks for well over a decade and it is one of the easiest benchmarks out there to run.

AIDA64 5.80 Memory & Cache Benchmark: link

AIDA64 is an industry-leading system information tool, loved by PC enthusiasts around the world, which not only provides extremely detailed information about both hardware and installed software, but also helps users diagnose issues and offers benchmarks to measure the performance of the computer.

Memory Bandwidth Results Summary: The We tested the Intel Core i7-7700K and the Intel Core i7-6700K on the same exact Gigabyte Aorus Z270X-Gaming 5 motherboard with Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3000MHz memory kit with CL15 timings, so it’s not a big shocker that the memory performance is pretty much the same. Even when the processor is overclocked up to 5.1GHz we don’t see any real difference on the memory and that is because we just increased the multiplier and didn’t increase the bus clock, so the memory was run at the same speed. The take home message here is that there is no memory bandwidth difference at comparable speeds, but we are hearing that the Intel Z270 chipset platform is going to allow for great memory overclocking with some motherboard makers already 4,500MHz on DDR4 dual channel memory kits!
