Kingston Predator 16GB (2x8GB) 1866 MHz DDR3 RAM/Memory Kit Review (KHX18C9T2K2/16X) - Benchmarks - AIDA64
AIDA64 is a 64-bit benchmarking, monitoring, and diagnostic suite which proves useful for a large number of applications. The benchmarking side of the suite allows testing a wide range of CPU performance, disk performance, and for this particular review, memory benchmarking. For more information on the AIDA64 Extreme Edition we're using for our tests, see Finalware's Website.
The results are as expected: overclocking shows an increase in performance, but it isn't a big one. The biggest increase is seen in memory latency at a solid 20%, but the other tests don't show much of a speed increase. The XMP gives a nice no-hassle boost out of the box, and gets you a nice boost for a simple setting change. It gets you to about 2/3 of the way to the best clock we could find and at the safety and reliability of the tested ratings.
