PCMark Vantage is a favorite benchmarking program for PC enthusiasts and reviewers alike, because it provides a very easy way to measure performance of different computers. It evaluates a system from eight perspectives (We only included the first seven results, since the HDD test is not very relevant to a RAM review), and can be considered a synthetic real life benchmark. From our results above, you will notice one distinct trend. On our Sandy Bridge test platform, it is safe to say the faster the RAM, generally the higher the score -- although there are rare exceptions. All of our recorded data can be seen and compared in our series of charts above.
