PcMark Vantage: 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. All three sets of memory in this test will be run at 1000MHz (DDR2 500) as well as the Mushkin Redline XP2 8000 at its maximum overclock.
SiSoftware Sandra XII: In this program, I will be doing the following benchmarks: Cache and Memory, Memory Bandwidth, and Memory Latency. Higher scores indicate better performance in all tests except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
In the PCMark Vantage testing, the Redline modules scored the highest. The Sandra testing showed the OCZ modules giving much better bandwidth. Latency was similar to the OCZ modules, while the Redline modules performed better in the Cache and Memory benchmarks.
