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, and the highest achievable speed for the Mushkin HP3 10666 2x2GB kit.
SiSoftware Sandra XII: 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. Higher is better in all tests, except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
In the PCMark Vantage 1333MHz testing, the Mushkin HP3 modules did not finish at the top, but were far from the bottom of the list. In the Vantage memory testing though, it was a strong second, finishing behind only the CSX modules. In the Sandra testing, the scores at the 1333MHz level were just about identical, given that the speed and latencies were again almost identical. In the Cache and Memory testing, the HP3 modules bested all of the modules, except the offering from CSX.
