SiSoft Sandra XI Synthetic Tests
Higher levels are better for bandwidth, lower for latency.



At stock speeds (800 MHz @ CAS 3-4-4-15), these modules deliver a smidge better memory performance compared to most enthusiast class DDR2-800 modules (which typically run at CAS 4-4-4-15). We also documented the performance of the modules when overclocked. Cranking these modules up to much higher levels (without overclocking the CPU) didn't help memory bandwidth too much, but does improve latency by quite a bit.
