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 1600 for a comparison point, and the highest achievable speed for the OCZ Platinum Triple Channel 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 PC MArk Vantage testing the OCZ Platinum PC3 12800 finished below the Patriot for the total score, but was unbeaten in the memory testing. The Mushkin came close to the performance generated by the OCZ modules. The Sandra testing shows the benefit of the tighter timings the OCZ Platinum modules, as the performance they deliver is above that of the other two sets of modules.
