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 is about right for the frequency of the memory and the CPU, it differs insignificantly between the ASUS and MSI motherboards on test.
Similar Z270 memory testing, albeit with the i7 7700K @ 4.5GHz all-core Turbo, reaped about 41-49,000 MB/s across a range of motherboards in AIDA64 and 32 to 37 GB/s in SiSoft Sandra memory test. Latency appears to have gone up from 44-48ns but that could well be from differences in the CPU frequency and Hyper-Threading related. Hence why legacy Z270 results have not been included in this review as direct comparison.
