SiSoftware Sandra 2011: 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
As expected the Samsung kit scores a bit lower in most of these tests. The looser timings and lower frequencies are to blame. When overclocked they close the gap but the other kits overclock higher with tighter timings to win the lead. These differences are small and you likely won't see them in day to day use. If all you are looking for are higher bench scores than these probably aren't for you.
