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.
SiSoftware Sandra 2009 SP2: In this program, I will be running the following benchmarks: Cache and Memory, Memory Bandwidth and Memory Latency. Higher is better in all tests, except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
In PCMark Vantage the Suite and memory scores delivered by the Kingston's was very competitive. When compared to the Mushkin PC3 12800 modules that are rated at 9-9-9-24 the performance is almost identical between the two sets. When the modules are pushed to almost 1000MHz the performance in the Sandra testing puts the modules at the top of the charts. In PCMark Vantage the overclock got the modules to perform at a much higher level.
