Memory Performance

AIDA64 Engineer

In terms of memory performance, the motherboard reported good statistics and remained fairly competitive. While it’s not the best result we’ve seen, the difference is negligible and only visible through synthetic tests.

The hefty overclock helps matters and brings the performance exceedingly close to two highly regarded SuperMicro motherboards.

Here we can see very similar pattern to what transpired in AIDA64. The memory bandwidth is consistent and offers impressive performance numbers across Float, Aggregate and Integer benchmarks.

The overclock has a significant impact and moves the motherboard into a very respectable second position. Furthermore, the Inter performance is fantastic and within touching distance of breaking the 33GB/s mark.

Combined Latency Test

When it comes to memory latency, the motherboard reports fairly average figures in AIDA64, but it doesn’t pose a problem and remains within an expected margin of error.

Once overclocked, the situation improves and results in incredibly low latency scores.
