System Installation & Performance Testing
The test system we are using to benchmark our 2 x 16GB T-Create memory kit is:
- Open Test Bench
- Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Motherboard
- Intel 9900K Processor at Stock
- Corsair H115i Platinum
- Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Gaming Oc GPU
- Corsair HX750 PSU
- Microsoft Windows 10 Professional
For testing, we benchmarked with the following pieces of software:
- AIDA64 Extreme Edition
- Passmark Performance Test
- SiSoft Sandra
- Super Pi Modded 1.5
“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 multi-threading option switched off. So if you have a 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 the LZMA method and decompression with the LZMA method. Once the total passes reach 100, the score is taken.”
In the 7-Zip benchmark, TeamGroup’s T-Create Classic sits in the middle of the pack with a score of 65793 and finds itself in 2nd place among the other 3200MHz kits.
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, the T-Create kit is at the bottom of the graph likely due to its looser timings than other kits we have reviewed.
In the AIDA latency benchmark, the T-Create Classic is in the lower portion of the graph with a latency of 55.6ns.
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.”
In Passmark we find the T-Create Classic in the middle of the pack with a score of 35045.
“SiSoftware Sandra provides a robust package of diagnostic tools for testing your system and teasing out its problems–or potential headaches.”
In SiSoft, again due to the looser timings of the T-Create Classic is near the bottom of the graph with scores of 27.81/27.92/27.71 GB/s in Aggregate/Integer/Float values.
Super Pi Modded 1.5
“On 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.”
In SuperPi the T-Create Classic finishes with a time of 7 minutes and 20 seconds which is with 15-20 seconds of other 3200MHz kits we have benched.
