PassMark PerformanceTest is an integral benchmarking program to our battery of standard performance evaluation software collection here at APH Networks. It takes a somewhat different approach in obtaining results compared to other programs, which is why we like to use it, haha. PassMark Performance Test 7.0's memory benchmarking tool is the only test in our setup that takes memory capacity into account. Generally speaking, doubling the RAM will increase the score by about one and a half times to two times. Both Kingston kits are 16GB, while everything else is 8GB. The Patriot Viper 3 Low Profile is 32GB. The fact that it is taking giant lead is definitely something we have been expecting for this benchmark. For the rest of the tests, they are all within a hair of each other, as expected from benchmarking memory.
