PCMark Vantage: With this benchmark, I will be running the system suite as well as the memory test suite. The measure for the system suite will be the total score. The measure for memory performance is the total memory score. A comparison will be made of the performance at what the Aeneon XTune DDR3 kit can do at 1333MHz, 1600MHz, as well as the highest achievable speeds compared against the scores achieved at 1333MHz for the other kits.
SiSoftware Sandra XII: In this program, I will be doing the following benchmarks: Cache and Memory, Memory Bandwidth, and Memory Latency. Again, I'll be comparing the sticks at DDR2 800 speed and then the DDR3 will be shown at its native FSB of 1333. Higher is better in all tests except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
The Aeneon XTune DDR3 1600 2x 1GB kit of memory was able to outperform the other two kits that it was put up against at its rated speeds and while it was overclocked, and even when it was underclocked down to the 1333MHz settings. The only tests that this kit of desktop memory was unable to outperform the comparison modules was when underclocked during the Vantage Memory and Sandra Memory bandwidth testing.
