Kingston HyperX Red - 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Memory Kit Review (KHX16C9B1RK2/8) - Benchmarks - SiSoft Sandra
SiSoftware's Sandra is another enthusiast utility suite which features a wide array of benchmarking capabilities, hardware monitoring, hardware information, diagnostics, and reporting capabilities for stability and configuration testing. Its benchmarking capabilities extend to nearly every component of your computer, including the entire system, the exception being dedicated graphics benchmarking. It also generates graphics which compare products for their aggregated performances including efficiency and price, which can be a powerful tool in itself and gives you an idea of where your system falls. We'll be using its memory benchmarking tools to verify our AIDA64 results, and provide a separate basis of comparison with a different piece of testing software.
Again, the same trends are seen as in AIDA64, with the highest overclock giving around a 20% average performance improvement. The first overclock step to the 1600 MHz specification also gives you about 2/3 of the performance increase from the stock 1333 MHz when compared to the 1866 MHz overclock.
