So for memory we had some good stuff to work with, Intel has a couple of certified partners for memory to get some sweet XMP 1.3 profiles going. One of them is Corsair with their newly released Vengeance Pro series series memory, their 3rd reincarnation of their DDR3 memory modules I think.
Now with the regular memory at 1600 MHz versus AIDA memory tests we see good performance hovering at the 18-19K marker.
Memory Write test
We did the same with the memory write tests. The write performance between the two speeds we're testing is much closer here, but absolutely rules.
If you like to go a little more crazy, once you overclock and enable an XMP profile (should you have compatible memory) then you get stuff like show below (which is very impressive of course), this is a Corsair Vengeance Pro series kit at 2400 MHz BTW:
Sandra Memory Index
Here we make use of the Sandra Memory performance test, it gives us an index score of overall memory performance.
Core i7 4960X processor review Today an article covering the Core i7 4960X (Ivy Bridge-E) on a X79 based motherboard. Intel's most high-end processors just got updated with a high-end six-core processor series aimed at consumers.
Core i7 4820K processor review In this review we test the new four-core Core i7 4820K Ivy Bridge-E processor. This is the only quad-core IBE processor that Intel will release. But it is unlocked and as such direct competition for the Core i7 4770K.
Core i7 4770K processor review We review the Core i7 4770K processor. The new processors family should be a notch faster, get improved graphics performance and be more energy efficient. Will the Haswell be the processor series everything you expected? Go find out in this extensive review here at Guru3D.
Core i7 3770K review with Z77 We review the Core i7 3770K Ivy bridge processors alongside Intel's Z77 motherboard. Will Ivy Bridge be the processor series everything you expected? Go find out in this extensive review here at Guru3D.
