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 Mushkin XP3 16000.
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 1333MHz testing, the Diablo modules did not fare as well in the total suite score as the other modules. In the Vantage memory testing though, it cleaned house, finishing almost 500 marks higher than the closest set of modules. In the Sandra testing, the scores at the 1333MHz level were just about identical, given that the speed and latencies were again almost identical. Once the modules were raised to 2000MHz, the performance skyrockets.
