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 2018 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 was very similar between the two X470 motherboards on test, with the variation that we did observe possibly down to the fact the ASRock ITX motherboard was only using two memory modules (ITX form factor limitation) compared to the four memory modules on the ASUS ATX motherboard.
For a rough guide of how memory performance compares to Intel’s Z370 platform, with an i7 8700K, please see KitGuru’s most recent Z370 motherboard review. Please note software and driver versions have changed hence why we caution that results are not directly comparable.
