AIDA64 Engineer is a multi-featured software suite for diagnostics, stress testing, benchmarking, software auditing and various other measurement parameters. We use AIDA64 Engineer to benchmark memory throughput and latency.
Sandra Memory Bandwidth
SiSoft Sandra 2017 is a multi-function utility program that supports remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, mobile devices and networks. We use the SiSoft Sandra memory bandwidth test to provide a set of memory bandwidth results.
Memory throughput and latency were both a little sub-par in synthetic benchmarks compared to MSI’s offerings, though it has little impact in real world tests. ASRock’s performance is similar to that of Gigabyte’s and we can’t quite put our finger on what’s causing the slight gap in numbers. Perhaps slightly less aggressive turbo behaviour in the realm of the CPU cache ratio?
