Final Conclusion

Crucial Ballistix DDR3 PC3-12800 Memory - Testing:

 

I was very interested to see how this memory was going to perform, and also very interested to see how it would compare to some other DDR3 that we've looked at. In order to run this memory at stock speeds it will require a bit of an overclock on our CPU, but I've also included a few test numbers from speeds that are running below the Crucial Ballistix "stock" speeds to see how it peforms in other situations.

Let's get onto the final results of what this kit of Crucial Ballistix DDR3 can really do...

Sisoft Sandra Memory Benchmarks - All Results in MB/s (Higher is Better)

 

The results are very decent in the Sisoft Sandra testing, and the memory bandwidth continues to increase as the Mhz is increased. It's interesting to see how the tighter timings increased performance at 1600 Mhz and 1280 Mhz.

Everest Ultimate Memory Benchmarks - All Results in MB/s (Higher is Better)

 

The Everest Ultimate results were very similar to the Sisoft results, and as you can see in the Read tests at speeds of 1792 Mhz we were almost able to break 10k, and with a little more tweaking it should be not problem to break 10k.
