DDR3 Memory Scaling Performance With AMD's Athlon 5350

Our latest benchmarks of AMD's AM1 Platform this weekend is looking at the performance impact of the DDR3 memory frequency on the overall system performance while running Ubuntu Linux. The AMD Athlon 5350 APU was tested with DDR3 at 800MHz, 1066MHz, 1333MHz, and 1600MHz (the maximum for these current socketed Kabini APUs).

Intel Haswell Memory Scaling With Ubuntu 14.04 + Linux 3.13

After the recent tests of AMD's Kaveri APU with DDR3-800MHz to DDR3-2133MHz Linux memory testing and following up with AMD Kaveri DDR3-2400MHz testing on Ubuntu Linux, many Phoronix readers followed up with a request of new memory testing done on the Intel side. In this article are benchmarks of a Core i5 Haswell CPU looking at the CPU and graphics performance impact with memory frequency scaling on Ubuntu 14.04 with the Linux 3.13 kernel.

DDR3-2400MHz 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.

DDR3-800MHz To DDR3-2133MHz Memory Testing With AMD's Kaveri

For those trying to skimp on a system memory purchase for a new AMD Kaveri system or just curious about the impact the system memory bandwidth has on the latest-generation APUs, here are some benchmarks looking at the overall system memory performance when testing all major DDR3 system memory speeds between DDR3-800MHz and DDR3-2133MHz.

G.SKILL 8GB DDR3 Laptop Memory On A Linux Ultrabook

With my purchase last month of the ASUS Zenbook Prime as a new Intel ultrabook for carrying out some development work while traveling, the only two traits of the system that I didn't like were the use of an Ivy Bridge processor over Haswell and that it had only 4GB of DDR3 system memory. Fortunately, the latter can be easily corrected and with the ultrabook order I bought a 8GB G.SKILL DDR3-1600MHz DIMM for this Core i7 system that I dual-loaded with Fedora 20 and Ubuntu Linux.

Intel Haswell DDR3 Memory Performance Impact On Graphics

For starting a new week of Linux benchmarking at Phoronix, some more results to push along Monday morning are performance test results looking at Intel's Haswell Linux graphics performance when manipulating the DDR3 memory frequencies. These results show the impact of Intel Haswell graphics on Linux when running the system memory at DDR3-800, DDR3-1066, DDR3-1333, and DDR3-1600 MHz frequencies... The performance difference of the latest-generation Intel graphics may surprise you.

AMD Trinity Linux Memory Performance

Following the initial AMD A10-5800K Trinity on Linux article earlier in the week, many forum goers were discussing the impact that the system memory speed has on the overall performance for this latest generation APU. In this benchmark are results looking at the impact of the Linux performance as the DDR3 memory operates at speeds from 800MHz through 2133MHz.

OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Black Edition

As can be seen in many Phoronix articles and in the memory reviews themselves, OCZ memory is quite common to Phoronix. While OCZ Technology is only eight years old, they have done a phenomenal job at building a terrific brand that is highly regarded among enthusiasts, gamers, and professionals. OCZ has expanded over the years from just being a system memory producer to a vendor of interesting flash drives and high-performance SSDs, among other products, but in this review we have caught ourselves looking at another OCZ DDR3 memory kit. The OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 Black Edition kit is specifically designed for use with AMD's latest processors and chipsets.

CSX 3GB DDR3-1600MHz Memory

Unless you are located in Germany or some other parts of Europe, chances are you have never heard of Compustocx. Compustocx, or CSX for short, is a German manufacturer of system memory modules for computers and is one of the largest memory upgrade providers for Apple computers. CSX has also ventured into producing solid-state drives, audio products, and FB-DIMM memory. Recently though we were asked by a US representative for Compustocx to look at one of their newest DDR3 memory kits, which we gladly accepted. The RAM we are testing out today is the CSX 3GB DDR3-1660MHz (CSXO-CEC3-1600-3GB-3KIT) memory kit.
