SiSoft Sandra 2014 SP3
In the Sandra memory tests, the Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 modules are slightly outperformed by the Vengeance modules at 2133MHz speeds, but blow them away when running at the 3200MHz speed. However, the optimizations Corsair engineered into the Dominator Platinum modules becomes apparent with their lower measured latency numbers.
AIDA64 Extreme Edition
The Dominator Platinum module performance with the AIDA64 memory benchmarks mirror those seen in the Sandra benchmarks, further validating the Sandra results. The AIDA64 tests show slightly lower transfer rates at stock 2133MHz speeds, but illustrate the better latency numbers of the Platinum modules.
7-Zip is an open-source file compression and decompression software. File compression and decompression are very system and memory intensive, acting as a good indicator for system performance. The 7-Zip benchmark test was run with a 192MB dictionary size, 16 CPU threads active, and for 5 passes per test. The included benchmark test was repeated three times with the highest repeatable MIPS (Millions of Instructions Per Second) scores recorded.
The performance results here are telling of the real-world performance differences that you are likely to see when using the Dominator Platinum modules. The Vengeance modules outperform the Dominator Platinum modules at both stock and overclocked speeds, but this may be more an artifact of the memory size than the module operating speed. The 16B available from the Dominator Platinum modules may be more easily filled and overwhelmed than the 32GB available to the system with the Vengeance modules.

The test setup page explains
The test setup page explains this. Benchmarks were run at 3200MHz, not 3400MHz b/c 3200MHz was achievable with 100MHz base clock while 3400MHz speed required overclocking of the base clock speed to 127.5MHz. This overclocking would have skewed the benchmark results, making them not a good basis of comparison to the non overclocked numbers.
Is overclocking the base
Is overclocking the base clock bad?
No overclocking the base
No overclocking the base clock is not bad, it just affects the running speed of all other components in the system, adding some stress to those components. The gear ratio settngs help with that, but you are still running the components at a higher base speed with a lower ratio setting.
I did try running the memory at 34 x 100, but it was not stable at all with the 34x multiplier on the board. The 32x multiplier was the highest memory multiplier that would remain stable at the stock base clock speed…
Running stable here at 34×100
Running stable here at 34×100 (DDR4-3400) on my Rampage V Extreme with a decent 5960x. Maybe you should switch boards. 😉
so you dont show the actual
so you dont show the actual potential of the product, just undercut its performance so things aren’t “skewed.”
The “potential” of the
The “potential” of the product is indeed shown: it cannot run at full speed without overclocking the CPU.
If Corsair wanted it benchmarked at full speed, they should have made it capable of running at the rated speed without needing overclocking. I’d feel absolutely ripped off if I paid $1000 for memory and it couldn’t even run at it’s rated speed.
There’s nothing Corsair can
There’s nothing Corsair can do about what DRAM ratios work on which BCLK straps, that’s all Intel. 3200 is the highest you can go on 100BCLK, period.

Corsair didnt get the memo. The 90s light up disco ball PCs are over. That RAM is ugly but hey its got cool lights the per-verbal spinners.

This might come off sounding bigoted and ignorant, but I find it hard to tell anonymi apart. No doubt they are not an endangered species, at least in these parts.
lol what a waste of copper
lol what a waste of copper and silicon. this ddr4 is too expensive, too bulky, and held back back the current batch of cpus. someone forgot to tell ddr4 makers that we’re still in the ddr3 era.
