SiSoft Sandra 2005.SR3
We ran the standard SiSoft Sandra synthetic memory test.
ScienceMark 2.0 Memory
The ScienceMark 2.0 suite has its own memory benchmark that reports back cache memory speeds and system memory speeds. We are only going to look at system memory here.
Everest Ultimate Edition 2006
Everest, formerly known to the world as AIDA32, has gone commercial and taken their memory benchmark with them. There tests are similar to SiSoft’s and ScienceMark’s in that they stress the system via synthetic means to find the highest possible speeds. Here we have done both Read and Write speed tests as well as the copy memory test.
The Asus Crosshair motherboard just barely out performs the Foxconn 590 SLI motherboard in SiSoft and Everest memory benchmarks, but the differences are pretty small. We’ll wait and see what the benchmarks look like in real-world applications.
