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.
SiSoftware Sandra 2009 SP4: In this program, I will be running the following benchmarks: Cache and Memory, Memory Bandwidth, and Memory Latency. Higher is better in all tests, except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
The Mushkin Ridgeback kit at 1800MHz outperformed all the 1600MHz kits in all the SiSoft Sandra 2009 tests, with the most noticeable gains being that of the memory latency and bandwidth. In PCMark Vantage, the Ridgeback kit did beat out the other kits, but in this benchmark the differences were minimal and each kit was within a few hundred points of each other.
