First up we have SiSoft Sandra's Memory Benchmark. We are already seeing early indications that perhaps the 1T vs. 2T Command Rate may have a bigger impact than the 15 vs. 12 TRAS difference. While the OCZ memory is faster, the margin between the two isn't as extreme as the chart makes it out to be. The difference in Int scores is only 120 MB/s while the Float score difference is only 80 MB/s.
Sandra's Memory Latency benchmark again goes to OCZ but by a very small margin. Latency was only 1 ns better while the Speed Factor difference was only 1.4 points.
Everest Home Edition is an older benchmark program but it still offers up plenty of useful information regarding memory performance. The first benchmark used is Memory Read. Here we see the memory read speed is in OCZ's favor by 133 MB/s.
Again, OCZ takes the cake, ousting the Corsair memory by 230 MB/s. I must admit I am a bit surprised at how big of an impact the Command Rate is having on the results.
The latency results here follow suit with what we saw in SiSoft Sandra. Here, the OCZ memory is faster by 1.3 ns.
MemTach is the final benchmark that was run. The results here were a bit mixed. Analyze 1 went to Corsair while Analyze two was taken by OCZ. Corsair's margin of victory was much smaller than OCZ's however.
Move ahead as I take a look at overclocking and wrap things up with a conclusion...
