Kingston LoVo  1866 Memory Review

Benchmarking Part One

Everest Ultimate Edition

Everest gives a clear demonstration how certain aspects are better than others when it comes to memory. Clearly the extra speed of the LoVo at 1866MHz wins the day, but between the G.Skill ECO with CAS7 and the LoVo with CAS9, both at 1600MHz, the tests vary, although still near to each other. The higher read and write speeds of the G.Skill is confusingly beaten by the copy speed of the LoVo. 

 

SiSoft Sandra

Sandras bandwidth testing relies far more on pure speed, and the graph clearly shows the pecking order we'll see throughout most of the rest of our testing. At its rated speed the LoVo clearly wins, and at the lower voltage 1600MHz setting it's still got enough to just edge the G.Skill.

 

POV-Ray

Similar to the Sandra results, but much less dramatic, POV-Ray gains a few rendering PPS as the speed grows, and even at the same clock speed the Kingston bests the G.Skill.

 

CineBench R11.5

Without wanting to end up typing the same thing all the time, for the CineBench results, see the POV-Ray ones.

 

wPrime

Whilst insanely consistent results are perfect in a review, they don't make it easy to say anything different. The LoVo takes first and second, with the G.Skill just a hair behind the Kingston when at the same speed.

With more people interested in green hardware, Kingston have thrown their hat into the ring.

The trouble is NVIDIA (Green) are beaten out in the energy efficiency ring by AMD (Red) meaning a truly energy efficient PC will end up looking more like a Christmas tree than a miniaturised Hulk

Nicely done that! Have you looked to compare these against g.skill eco kits? I have all 3 from the range here.. 1600cl7, cl8, cl9. All 1.35v. All very nice kits

hate to be the sore thumb in all of this. but a reduction of 300mv makes something "green" these days? I would be curious to know the total current draw, based on an amp/watt total....vs. "normal ram"

I don't think a reduction of 300mv and a green heat spreader can really be called "low voltage".....maybe "slightly lower voltage" or "slovo" would have been more appropriate a title (lolz c wut i did thar?)

seriously "green" seems to be the hype marketing term these days, for products that really aren't that different

I do however, applaud them for effort....
