Mushkin 996996 8GB 2133Mhz Testing:
SiSoftware Sandra 2013: In this program, I will be running the following benchmarks: Memory Bandwidth and Transactional Memory Throughput. Higher score are better in the Bandwidth test while lower scores are better in the transactional memory test.
X.264 Benchmark: This benchmark is used to measure the time it takes to encode a 1080p video file into the x.264 format. The default benchmark is used with an average of all four tests on each pass taken as the result.
AIDA64 Extreme Edition is a software utility designed to be used for hardware diagnosis and benchmarking. I will be using the Cache and Memory benchmark to test each module’s read, write, and copy bandwidth, as well as the latency test.
Higher is Better
In many of these tests the 996996 set of Redline modules perform similarly to the 993997 kit, also from Mushkin, that carries the same timings of 9-11-10-28 and speed bin of 2133MHz.
