Aeneon Xtune vs Crucial Ballistix - Comparison

 

I was very interested to see how the two types of memory would compare against each other. The timings of the two kits of memory are a bit different at stock speeds, but for our testing we have kept the timings and CPU speeds the same for comparison purposes. The final scores are going to be a bit different between the two kits seeing as the Aeneon is using Qimonda memory modules, while the Crucial Ballistix is based on Micron modules.

As you can see in the above charts from Sisoft Sandra, the Aeneon memory was able to score higher in the lower tests, but as the speeds increased the Crucial was able to close the gap a little. As you can also see the Crucial was able to run much tighter timings at 1600 Mhz speeds, and with these timings it was able to come very close and even ahead of the Aeneon memory.
