As you have seen from our past reviews, AIDA64 CPU tests, or formerly known as EVEREST, are the first on our list of benchmarks. Version 4.60 (The latest release at press time; which can be downloaded from our Downloads page) results should not and cannot be compared to what we have obtained earlier, because of the different versions, as well as the fact this test machine is completely different from the Editor-in-Chief’s machine. Looking at the comparison between the two memory modules, you can see there really is not much difference between the two units, despite running at different frequencies, latencies, and even the total amount of memory. The AIDA64 CPU PhotoWorxx test is probably the only outlier, but the rest are within a score of twenty points, and thus the scores do not really show the difference between the two tested DDR3 memory units. Looking at the actual results, we can also see it is a mixed bag between who is ahead and not, as Kingston HyperX Fury HX318C10FK2/16 2x8GB DDR3 takes the victory in two cases, while the G.Skill Ripjaws-X 2x4GB takes the slight margin in three. Of course, one of the Fury’s victories is also a landslide in comparison to the other tests, as that test took advantage of the extra memory bandwidth.
