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.”

For only 3000 MHz memory, the Ballistix Sport AT comes in with bandwidth exceeding 44GB/s and goes toe to toe with kits of 3200MHz+.

The lower speed and CAS 17 timings give it a passable but not class-leading 56.3ns.

 

 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.”

The Sport AT still scores incredibly well in Passmark’s Threaded Memory Mark test with a score just shy of 41k.

 

SiSoft Sandra

“SiSoftware Sandra provides a robust package of diagnostic tools for testing your system and teasing out its problems--or potential headaches.”

SiSoft Sandra also shows the Sport AT performing much closer to 3200MHz kits than any of our other 3000MHz kits tested.

 

7-Zip

"This form allows you to measure the performance of your computer. The benchmark shows a rating of MIPS (million instructions per second). The rating value is calculated from the measured speed, and it is normalized with results of Intel Core 2 CPU with multi-threading option switched off. So if you have modern CPU from Intel or AMD, rating values in single-thread mode must be close to real CPU frequency. There are two tests, compression with LZMA method and decompression with LZMA method. Once the total passes reach 100, the score is taken.”

7-Zip also really likes the performance of the Sport AT coming in at just over forty-six thousand MIPS.
