DDR3-2400MHz Performance On AMD's A10 Kaveri With Kingston's HyperX Beast

Earlier in the week I published benchmarks showing AMD Kaveri's DDR3-800MHz through DDR3-2133MHz system memory performance. Those results showed this latest-generation AMD APU craving -- and being able to take advantage of -- high memory frequencies. Many were curious how DDR3-2400MHz would fair with Kaveri so here's some benchmarks as we test out Kingston's HyperX Beast 8GB DDR3-2400MHz memory kit.

The earlier memory testing for the AMD A10-7850K only went up to DDR3-2133MHz since the memory kit supplied by AMD with the Kaveri review system only went that high, but since then I've carried out some tests using the Kingston HyperX Beast 8GB Kit (KHX24C11T3K2/8X).

This dual 4GB Kingston kit is rated for DDR3-2400MHz PC3-19200 and with its XMP profile is timed at 11-13-13 at 1.65V. The secondary XMP profile is for DDR3-2133MHz at 11-12-11 at 1.6V while the JEDEC specification is for DDR3-1333MHz at 9-9-9 at 1.5V. Kingston backs the KHX24C11T3K2 system memory with a lifetime warranty and the 8GB kit is currently retailing for about $110 USD.

This DDR3-2400MHz testing is being done similarly to the earlier Kaveri memory tests and the A10-7850K system running Ubuntu Linux was benchmarked with the Kingston HyperX memory at the DDR3-800MHz, DDR3-1066MHz, DDR3-1333MHz, DDR3-1600MHz, DDR3-1866MHz, DDR3-2133MHz, and DDR3-2400MHz frequencies. The Kingston HyperX Beast system memory had run fine with the AMD Kaveri system using the latest UEFI version on the ASUS A88X-PRO motherboard.

With this new round of testing we also pulled in a few extra OpenBenchmarking.org test profiles to get a more diverse spectrum of tests when running the Phoronix Test Suite.
