Kingston HyperX Predator 2800MHz Testing:
PCMark 8: With this benchmark, I will be running the Home and Creative suites. The measurement for the both test suites will be the total score.
Geekbench 2.1 provides a comprehensive set of benchmarks engineered to quickly and accurately measure processor and memory performance. Designed to make benchmarks easy to run and easy to understand, Geekbench takes the guesswork out of producing robust and reliable benchmark results.
Hyper Pi is a multi threaded program designed to calculate Pi up to the 32nd millionth digit after the decimal and is used as both a benchmarking utility and simple stress test to check your overclock before moving forward with more rigorous testing. The world records for this benchmark utility are hotly contested.
This first set of benchmarks show that modules set up to run speed numbers often trade performance for the MHz rating. In this case, the 2800MHz XMP 1.3 profile on the HyperX Predator modules are loose enough that the performance trade off is not there, as the modules finish lowest in 3 out of 5 tests. When pushed further, the modules do slightly better in terms of comparative performance.
