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 1333 for a comparison point, and the highest achievable speed for the Patriot Tri 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 PCMark Vantage testing, the 6GB Viper series modules perform at a level far exceeding that of the 3GB set from Qimonda. There is not one test in this series of benchmarks where the 3GB set is the better performer. It could be a different story with a different O/S but it seems Vista and 6GB of system memory seem to be the next logical step when using an Intel X58 motherboard, coupled with a Core i7 processor.
