Read performance on Intel is way up there, as the TridentZ NEO is only bested by the XPG Z1 with a 1000MHz head start over the XMP profile! Dropping to 14-14-14 adds 1000MB/s boost to the results, and getting to 4000MHz at CAS16 delivers a 3300MB/s increase, which is enormous!
Write performance on the Intel system has put the NEO in the top slot, and all you have to do to get it is enable the XMP 2.0 profile. Lowering the timings did slightly worse, but for AIDA64 bandwidth results, we can see 4000MHz at CAS16 was pushing them too far, as the hit to performance is enormous.
Again, it is another first-place finish for G.Skill! Over 300MB/s better than any competition with the XMP profile applied is terrific. Lowering the timings delivers another 1400MB/s, but we lose nearly 3400MB/s opting for speed.
Latency, compared to AMD, is backward. While the TridentZ NEO again takes to the top slot, we see lower latencies with overclocking, yet that does not always translate to better performance across the board.
Yet another first place, well tied for first place, but it's all the same to us! Unlike with the AMD system, we see that for those who like to tinker, there are advantages to be had, but they are small.
In second, by only twenty-six points, G.Skill shows well here too! Points here are hard-earned in the Physics scores, and we find that 3600MHz at CAS14 took the top spot, whereas the 4000MHz run is still eight points from the Xcalibur sticks.
PCMark 10 is pretty rough on the TridentZ Neo with Intel as well. Fourth place is a better spot to be in than we saw with the AMD system, and to be fair, the scores are close with the top four kits. Tinkering does not have a significant advantage over the XMP profile, but we do see that lower timings beat raw speed.
While in fourth place when it comes to 7-zip, realize that only the Viper Blackout sticks are comparable, without a speed advantage. However, we blew the doors off this test to the tune of fifteen seconds gained over the top-performing kit at CAS14, and ripped the roof off with the 4000MHz run, besting the first place holder by nearly thirty-three seconds!
Cinebench R15 has the TridentZ NEO in fourth place while using the XMP profile. Points can be gained by raising the speed, but in this instance, lower timings prevailed with the best possible score we could achieve with this kit.
Last is Handbrake, and transcoding on Intel with the TridentZ NEO has us in fifth place, behind the TOPUGHRAM, Xcalibur, and Viper Blackout, which match in speed, it also falls just behind the XPower Turbine, which runs at 3200MHz. Tinkering has improved on the results, and for Handbrake, speed wins over tighter timings.
