Memory Performance

Like the CPU tests on the previous page, these tests evaluate the performance of the memory modules that the vendor chose to use in their product. The Aurora m9700 that we are testing comes with a 2GB of DDR RAM on two SODIMMs which use Samsung modules clocked at 200 MHz and a 3-4-4-8 timing.

    • Alienware m9700 – AMD Turion 64 ML-44, 2×1024 RAM (3-4-8-8) – 400 MHz

The Aurora mALX is marginally faster than the m9700 thanks to slightly faster RAM timings. Compared to the Intel systems, the DDR2 advantage beats the mALX in almost every case.
