The PassMark Performance 10 tests come down to four categories: CPU, Memory, 2D Graphics, and 3D graphics. This provides a nice variety of tests to perform on system hardware; something I will personally always take when it comes to benchmarking important components such as RAM modules. Even though PassMark Performance 10 takes memory capacity into account to an extent, this does not matter here, since both the tested RAM modules have the exact same memory capacity. We can see the XPG Spectrix D50 DDR4-3600 2x8GB had a very narrow lead in the memory test. This is consistent with the AIDA64 memory benchmark results, as the Spectrix D50 has slightly lower latencies than the TridentZ RGB. All the other benchmark tests showed the two memory modules performing at very similar scores, with the Spectrix D50 ranking slightly higher in the 2D and 3D tests.
