SiSoftware Sandra 2012: 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.
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.
Higher is Better
In this series of tests, the modules perform in the range that their timings and raw clock speed dictate. As the slowest kit in the field when overclocked at 2006 MHz, the Extreme Masters Modules still perform well. Raw clock speed does not reach a point where it completely makes up for the latency costs.
