Benchmark Testing

SiSoft Sandra 2015 SP2b

At 2133MHz stock speeds, the Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 modules matched performance with the other tested modules. The bandwidth increased by almost 50% with the memory running at its rated 3200MHz speed. While the Dominator modules performed with a higher bandwidth, they required a non-stock base clock setting while the Vengeance LPX modules ran at their rated speed easily at the stock base clock speed.

AIDA64 Extreme Edition

The Vengeance LPX DDR-3200 kit performance scaling mimics that seen in the Sandra memory benchmarking tests with the kit's performance increasing by almost 50% with the modules set to run at their 3200MHz rated speed.

7-Zip

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, 8 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 better demonstrate the real-world performance differences that you are likely to see when using the Vengeance LPX modules under review. The module performance scales in a similar fashion to that seen in the previous tests when the modules are run at their rated speeds. However, the Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 modules performance increased by almost 15% instead of the 50% increase seen in the memory-specific benchmarks.
