PcMark05: 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 DDR2 800 and DDR3 800 and 1333 speeds.
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 DDR2 800 speed and then the DDR3 will be shown at its native FSB of 1333. Higher is better in all tests except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
At stock speeds, the DDR3 memory really does shine. It beats the other modules hands down in all the tests but the latency test and overall PcMark05 score. The latency test was where I was expecting it to not fare as well as the other modules tested.
