Performance - DDR2 Memory read|write

Memory Read test

Obviously we also had to peek at memory bandwidth performance. Now, obviously Intel has two advantages here. Triple-channel memory and DDR3 memory. This explains the tremendous amount of read performance for Core i7 platforms.

If you'd filter that out though, the dual-channel performance achieved with Phenom II X4 810 and X3 720 BE and our 1066 MHz DDR2 memory, is superb at nearly 8000 MB/sec.

Memory Write test

The same goes for the memory write tests. Of course Intel dominates here and considering we used 1333 JEDEC memory on that platform, it even shows somewhat slow number. Triple channel performance on Nehalem is just frightening good really.

The new AM3 Phenoms II processors in both read and write performance seem to benefit from the new memory controller, it's really fast.
