Like our EVEREST 5.3 CPU benchmarks earlier on in this review, EVEREST 5.3's memory tests aren't necessarily influenced by the memory capacity -- rather it tests the characteristic performance of the memory modules. Again, while the G.SKILL RAM and compared Lenovo/Qimonda memory has the same bandwidth and latency ratings, the G.SKILL was outperformed by a few points each time; again to an insignificant degree (Less than 1%). The tests were run 3-5 times to confirm the accuracy of the benchmark results, due to the minute differences in their results. Tested memory latency is 82.4ns and 80.4ns, respectively, in favor of the stock kit.
