Patriot Viper 3 Series Black Mamba PC3-19200 16GB (2x8GB) Testing:
SiSoftware Sandra 2013: In this program, I will be running the following benchmarks: Memory Bandwidth and Transactional Memory Throughput. Higher score are better in the Bandwidth test while lower scores are better in the transactional memory test.
X.264 Benchmark: This benchmark is used to measure the time it takes to encode a 1080p video file into the x.264 format. The default benchmark is used with an average of all four tests on each pass taken as the result.
AIDA64 Extreme Edition is a software utility designed to be used for hardware diagnosis and benchmarking. I will be using the Cache and Memory benchmark to test each module’s read, write, and copy bandwidth, as well as the latency test.
At both stock and at 2800MHz the Patriot Viper 3 kit shows a similar trend of being just a bit slower than its counterparts due to the somewhat loose timings it runs. The real world application, X.264 encoding, highlights how synthetic benchmarks differentiate the sticks quite well even when real applications aren't affected much at all.
