MSI X299 Gaming M7 ACK Motherboard Review

AIDA64 Engineer

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 strong and initial problems with quad channel memory performance on X299 seem to be fading away. Some compatibility issues were experienced during our testing including a number of instances of the board going into dual or triple channel mode and losing significant throughput but we identified this issue as an intermittent fault in the memory kit and after testing a different memory kit performance was right back on the money.
