PcMark Vantage: With this benchmark, I will be running the system suite as well as the memory test suite. The measure for the system suite will be the total score. The measure for memory performance is the total memory score. A comparison will be made of the performance at DDR2 800 and the highest achievable overclocked speed for the Patriot Viper Fin PC2 6400.
SiSoftware Sandra XII: In this program, I will be doing the following benchmarks: Cache and Memory, Memory Bandwidth, and Memory Latency. Higher scores indicate better performance in all tests except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
In the PCMark Vantage testing the Patriot performance was sub par at stock settings in the overall scoring. On the memory testing the results are much closer, with only a few points separating the modules. In the cache and memory testing the Viper Fin series finished middle of the pack while pulling ahead in the memory latency test. The Viper Fin modules came out on top in both memory bandwidth tests.
