Testing was done with the following system.
AMD Phenom 2 X6 1090T CPU
Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 Motherboard
Patriot Viper 2 Sector 5 DDR3
Crucial 64GB SSD
Asus 9800GT Videocard
Windows was installed and patched with all the latest up to date drivers. The following software was used during testing, Pcmark Vantage, Sisoft Sandra 2010, SuperPi and Winrar. Overclocking was done with AMD Overlock Utility.
Note: Our motherboard is only able to run the ram at 2000MHz while the ram can run all the way up to 2400MHz, we will update the review when the 2400MHz motherboard arrives.
Sisoft Sandra 2010, Memory Bandwidth:
The higher results the better in this specific test, we can see that the Patriot is a bit faster as suspected.
Sisoft Sandra 2010, Memory Latency:
This test shows the latency speeds of the ram and we can see here that the Patriot kit is a tad faster since the lower results are better.
Sisoft Sandra 2010, Cache and Memory:
In this test on the other hand the bandwidth is supposed to be higher while the Speed is supposed to be lower. We can see here that a slight speed difference exist betweeen these two kits as suspected.
