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 Geil Ultra DDR3 kit can do at 1333MHz, 1600MHz, as well as the highest achievable speeds compared against the scores achieved at stock speeds 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 DDR3 1333MHz as well as 1600MHz and the highest possible overclock. Higher is better in all tests except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
The total score for PCMark Vantage and the Cache and Memory Sandra tests are the only tests at the overclocked settings that the Geil Ultra DDR3 kit fell short of the others it was compared against. The other tests were able to show that the Geil Ultra DDR3 memory was able to beat out all others when it was overclocked. I was impressed by the scores that the overclocked Geil memory was able to yield.
