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 the PCMark Vantage testing, the Mushkin modules scored at the lower end of the spectrum, but were definitely not the lowest performer. In the Sandra testing, the Mushkin modules do well in three out of the four categories. The Latency test is where the Blackline modules did not excel. Overclocking brought huge increases across the board when the modules were pushed up to 2000MHz.
