Testing – System & Memory
Our first full system test is PCMark Vantage. It is basically an entire system benchmark.
Moving back to Sandra 2011b, we are going to run the memory-specific tests. These tests include the Memory Bandwidth benchmark, Memory latency benchmark, and the Cache & Memory benchmark. You will notice not a big difference in the stock and overclocked results, that is because the CPU is overclocked independently of the memory.
Our final test is Super Pi, it is mainly based on speed of your processor. Lower times are better here.
