Default RAM scores?

Hey,

I was wondering if anyone could please tell me what the average speeds, or the lowest speeds i should be getting Memory wise....i would like to know the Memory Read, Memory Write, and Memory Latency for my RAM.....Kingston DDRII-533 512mb X2 (1024mb in Dual Channel)....i think EVERST is the best prog for these tests..correct me if im wrong...All help is much appreciated,

Thanks,

Matt

Well, the BIOS can read it for you. And, to be honest, the differences are in nano seconds, so even if big numbers are in, you won't be able to tell differences.

The reason i ask is because my mate who has Kingston 2gb DDR400 RAM and we have both tweaked the timings in the BIOS, yet his seems to churn out a fair amount higher scores than mine does...and I thought, mine being DDRII-533, i should get a higher score than him, tweaked or not.

Matt

EDIT: So i wanted to know, as i think my RAM may be running worse than it should be, or something is making it work worse than it should...

The hing is, if you set lower timings on RAM, some may stuggle more than others. The best way to benchmark memory vs memory is by leaving into it's default settings.

Relooking at it again, it darns on me: DDR400 and DDRII 533 aren't the greatest RAMS to test on. The lowest DDR frequency and highest timings. They don't really have difference, but it's rather weird that the other guy pulls better scores.

Tell me, what's both the specs of the two computers?

Well, your specs may lack down the RAM with the Geforce 6500 and that 40GB hard drive. That's why.

Default Re: RAM scores?

Would you think i would have a noticable increase in performance if i used my 200gb as my primary drive and the 40 as my secondary?

Lol, i am hoping to get some money together to purchase a new gfx card, but they bloody too expensive for me! lol


Matt

EDIT: Just been reading some logs and found this....
i think that this was when we both were at stock clocks and settings....

My Memory Read: 4612 MB/s
His Memory Read: 6274MB/S

to me thats a pretty big increase when considering mine should be either the same if not better....
