Performance Testing

To test the EVO X II’s, we wanted to see how they performed in our standard 9900K system, but being geared toward AMD systems we also set up a Ryzen testbed with a 3900X. The configurations for these test systems are:

Intel Test Bench

  • Open Test Bench
  • Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Motherboard
  • Intel 9900K Processor at Stock
  • Cooler Master ML240P Mirage
  • MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming Z GPU
  • Corsair HX750 PSU
  • Microsoft Windows 10 Professional

AMD Test Bench

  • Open Test Bench
  • MSI MEG ACE Motherboard
  • AMD 3900X Processor at Stock
  • Ryzen Wraith Cooler
  • MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming Z GPU
  • Corsair HX750 PSU
  • Microsoft Windows 10 Professional

For testing, we benchmarked with the following pieces of software:

  • CPU-Z
  • AIDA64 Extreme Edition
  • Passmark Performance Test
  • SiSoft Sandra
  • 7-Zip
  • Super Pi Modded 1.5

 

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 the 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.”

In 7-Zip the EVO X II easily takes the top two spots and in our AMD system, the extra Ryzen cores allowed us to break 100,000 MIPS.

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.”

In AIDA64’s Memory Bandwidth test, the EVO X II’s take the top to spots again. In our AMD system, we also see a dramatic increase in Memory Copy performance over the Intel testbench.

In AIDA64’s Memory Latency, our Intel system records a snappy 47ns with the AMD measuring 82.1ns. This is to be expected with the AMD system due to Ryzen’s chiplet architecture vs Intel single-chip design.

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 EVO X II’s also do very well in the Passmark memory test, beating out the majority of the modules we have benched.

SiSoft Sandra

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

We see the AMD once again besting the Intel system in SiSoft’s Memory Bandwidth benchmark with the AMD system reaching 4th place in the rankings.

Super Pi Modded 1.5

“In August 1995, the calculation of pi up to 4,294,960,000 decimal digits was succeeded by using a supercomputer at the University of Tokyo. The program was written by D.Takahashi in collaboration with Dr.Y.Kanada at the computer center. This record should be the current world record. (Details are shown in the windows help.) This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environments such as Windows NT and Windows 95. In order to calculate 33.55 million digits, it takes 3 days with a Pentium 90 MHz, 40 MB main memory and 340 MB available storage.”

GeIL EVO X II AMD Edition

In SuperPi, the EVO X II’s manage to take both the top and bottom spot with Intel taking the title with 6 minutes and 56 seconds. This is to be expected with the AMD system due to the latency difference between the systems.
