AIDA64 Engineer Edition
“AIDA64 Engineer has a hardware detection engine unrivaled in its class. It provides detailed information about installed software and offers diagnostic functions and support for overclocking. As it is monitoring sensors in real-time, it can gather accurate voltage, temperature and fan speed readings, while its diagnostic functions help detect and prevent hardware issues. It also offers a couple of benchmarks for measuring the performance of individual hardware components or the whole system. It is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows editions, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.”
Since bandwidth is mostly a function of raw speed, you would expect a most 3200 MHz kits to score roughly the same but HyperX’s FURY RGB jumps to the top of the charts with combined copy speeds easily clearing the 45K mark.
Latency comes in a bit faster than we expected at 47.8ns.
Passmark Performance Test – Memory Mark – Threaded
“Fast, easy to use, PC speed testing and benchmarking. PassMark PerformanceTest ™ allows you to objectively benchmark a PC using a variety of different speed tests and compare the results to other computers.”
Passmark reacts quite well to the FURY RGB and gives us a great score of just shy of 40K.
“SiSoftware Sandra provides a robust package of diagnostic tools for testing your system and teasing out its problems–or potential headaches.”
SiSoft comes in with a bandwidth of right around 34GB/s, not the best we’ve seen from a 3200MHz kit, but certainly a strong score.
