OCZ Platinum PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) DDR3 2GB Kit
Sisoft Sandra is a synthetic benchmark utility capable of reporting and benchmarking a wide range of system components. For the OCZ platinum PC3-12800 memory we run both the Memory Bandwidth and Memory Latency benchmarks 3 times to ensure accuracy of results.
Everest is in many ways similar to Sisoft Sandra. Focusing mainly on Software and Hardware information reporting, Everest also comes with a benchmark utility suitable for testing the read, write and latency performance of the memory subsystem.
SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers. It's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching.
The first thing to note about the above benchmark results is that neither Everest or Sandra were able to successfully benchmark the Platinum PC3-12800 kit when it was running at its top speed of DDR3-1946. This certainly wasn't an issue with the stability of the modules, as they successfully completed several hours of SuperPI and Orthos testing. I can only assume that the results from the modules running at these speeds were beyond the programmed parameters of both benchmarks.
However, even without these results we can see that the OCZ Platinum PC3-12800 kit is blisteringly fast, managing not short of 10GB/s on the Everest Read benchmarks and a 52.2ns latency when overclocked on the Everest Latency benchmarks.
