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 performance takes a dive compared to the Z370 motherboards we previously tested since the 3,200MHz memory is now limited to 2,666MHz. However, if Z370 using 2,666MHz were to be compared to H370 using 2,666MHz, we expect that performance would be equivalent. However, overclocking the CPU can also enhance memory performance at the same frequency so Z370 definitely has the memory performance advantage.
