Linux Memory Performance With Intel Kabylake From DDR4-1600 To DDR4-3333MHz

Written by Michael Larabel in Memory on 26 January 2017. Page 5 of 5. 14 Comments

Darktable RAW image processing had only a tiny boost with the faster DDR4 memory.

The Redis performance was barely impacted by the DDR4 memory speed.

The memcached performance was also not really benefiting from the faster DDR4

The Apache web server saw only a minor boost in performance out the faster DDR4 memory speeds.

So if you've been thinking about what speed DDR4 memory to get, hopefully these real-world Linux benchmarks provide a bit of insight for you based upon your use-cases.

Those interested in the Corsair Vengeance 2 x 8GB DDR4-3200MHz memory used for testing in this article can find it at for just under $120 USD.
