Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR4 Memory Review

Corsair Redefines Premium Memory

The test system we are using to benchmark our 2 x 8GB Vulcan TUF Gaming Alliance Ram is:

  • Open Test Bench
  • Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Motherboard
  • Intel 9900K Processor at Stock
  • Corsair H115i Platinum 280mm AIO
  • MSI RTX 2060 Super Gaming Z GPU
  • Corsair HX750 PSU
  • Microsoft Windows 10 Professional

For testing, we benchmarked with the following pieces of software:

  • CPU-Z
  • AIDA64 Extreme Edition
  • Passmark Performance Test
  • SiSoft Sandra
  • 7-Zip
  • Super Pi Modded

7-Zip

“This form allows you to measure the performance of your computer. The benchmark shows a rating of MIPS (million instructions per second). The rating value is calculated from the measured speed, and it is normalized with the results of Intel Core 2 CPU with the multi-threading option switched off. So if you have modern CPU from Intel or AMD, rating values in single-thread mode must be close to real CPU frequency. There are two tests: compression with LZMA method and decompression with LZMA method. Once the total passes reach 100, the score is taken.”

The Dominator Platinum’s just edging out the competition taking the top spot in 7-zip on our 9900K test bench.

AIDA64 Engineer Edition

“AIDA64 Engineer has a hardware detection engine unrivaled in its class. It provides detailed information about installed software and offers diagnostic functions and support for overclocking. As it is monitoring sensors in real-time, it can gather accurate voltage, temperature and fan speed readings, while its diagnostic functions help detect and prevent hardware issues. It also offers a couple of benchmarks for measuring the performance of individual hardware components or the whole system. It is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows editions, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.”

In AIDA64’s bandwidth test, we see its pretty much a dead heat among the 3200MHz modules.

The Dominator Platinum RGB takes second place in the AIDA latency benchmark with an extremely fast 47ns.

Passmark Performance Test – Memory Mark – Threaded

“Fast, easy to use, PC speed testing and benchmarking. PassMark PerformanceTest ™ allows you to objectively benchmark a PC using a variety of different speed tests and compare the results to other computers.”

The Corsair Dominator Platinum’s post an impressive score of 38261 in the Memory Mark – Threaded benchmark taking second place in the 3200MHz category.

SiSoft Sandra

“SiSoftware Sandra provides a robust package of diagnostic tools for testing your system and teasing out its problems–or potential headaches.”

We see similar results in the SiSoft memory bandwidth test, with the Dominator Platinum’s again in second place.

Super Pi Modded 1.5

“In August 1995, the calculation of pi up to 4,294,960,000 decimal digits was succeeded by using a supercomputer at the University of Tokyo. The program was written by D.Takahashi in collaboration with Dr.Y.Kanada at the computer center. This record should be the current world record. (Details are shown in the windows help.) This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environments such as Windows NT and Windows 95. In order to calculate 33.55 million digits, it takes 3 days with a Pentium 90 MHz, 40 MB main memory and 340 MB available storage.”
