ASUS Maximus II GENE mATX Motherboard

Synthetic Memory Results

SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.


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. Each of these benchmarks were performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average calculated from the remaining three.
Results Analysis
Interestingly the memory benchmarks are a bit of a mixed bag with the overclocked settings taking the lead in the bandwidth results but then loosing out in the latency. Pretty strange considering the timings remained the same in both configurations and the memory divider, which should have only affected bandwidth, was the only thing to be changed.
