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. A comparison will be made of the performance at DDR3 1333 for a comparison point at the rated speed and timings and the highest achievable speed for the Mushkin HP3 12800 Tri channel kit.
SiSoftware Sandra 2009 SP2: In this program I will be running the following benchmarks: Cache and Memory, Memory Bandwidth and Memory Latency. All benchmarks will be at default timings and speeds except where noted. Higher is better in all tests, except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
The Mushkin modules are far and away the best performer in this series of tests. There is not one benchmark where it was outperformed at either the 1333MHz or 1600MHz mark. The memory score in vantage shows the effects of looser timings, but the results in Sandra show increases across the board.
