Benchmarks - 1 Sandra 2003
Let's fire up some benchmarks. This first bechmarks was done with the help of SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility. It should provide most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software. Sandra provides similar level of information to Norton SI, Quarterdeck WinProbe/Manifest, etc. The Win32 version is 32-bit and comes in both ANSI (legacy for Windows 98/Me systems) and native Unicode (Windows NT4/200X/.Net) formats. The Win64 version is 64-bit and comes in native Unicode format.
Do note that all the SANDRA benchmarks are synthetic and thus are may not tally with real-life performance. The latter stands for whatever your environment is, i.e. which applications you run with what amount of data and so on. It is up to you to decide whether what Sandra measures is what you want to measure.

|Pentium 4 2,4 GHz||C2.5:3:3||C2:2:2|
|EL DDR PC3500 @ 414 MHz||3144||3178|
|EL DDR PC3500 @ 400 MHz||3043||3073|
|EL DDR PC3500 @ 333 MHz||2544||2568|
|EL DDR PC3500 @ 266 MHz||2010||2043|
The results shown above is the measured memory bandwidth in MB/sec that the module delivers, to the left the normal (standard) mainboard RAM timing settings and to the right aggressive RAM timings. As you can see EL DDR will get you over 3000MB/sec bandwidth easily. EL DDR also handles aggressive RAM timings very well and stable which will give a tiny boost in performance as well. At 433 MHz we would have averaged at about 3300MB/sec.
