PCMark Vantage: With this benchmark I will be running the system suite, as well as the memory test suite. The measurement for the system suite will be the total score. The measurement for memory performance is the total memory score. A comparison will be made of the performance at DDR3 1333 for a comparison point, and the highest achievable speed for the Crucial Tri channel kit.
SiSoftware Sandra XII: In this program I will be running the following benchmarks: Cache and Memory, Memory Bandwidth and Memory Latency. All benchmarks will be at default timings. Higher is better in all tests, except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
In the PCMark Vantage testing, the 6GB set of modules from Crucial finished with the lowest total score but the second best memory score. The Sandra 2009 testing put the Crucial modules performance-wise between the Patriot Viper series and the Mushkin modules in all four tests. When the modules were maxed out with 10-10-10-28 timings the performance did not drop off as was expected.
