Intel Performance

Back to the beginning, this time with our Intel system at work, we love what we see in this read performance chart. The XMP profiles delivered the performance we would expect based on speed and timings alone, as only the 4600MHz ADATA kit does this better. We were not able to close that gap a bunch with overclocking, but there is a small boost going to 4000MHz, around 160 MB/s, but lowering timings drove that number into the 500 MB/s range performance boost over XMP 1

The write performance is not the worst we have seen, but things are not good! Both of the XMP profiles are next to last in the chart, with the lowered timings adding only a two-digit figure of a boost to the performance. Speed does seem to help a lot, as the increase here comes to the tune of roughly 2400 MB/s over XMP 1.

Copy performance is average, not great, and not bad! We expected more out of the XMP profiles, but this is an area where overclocking this kit shows over 400 MB/s over XMP 1 by lowering the timings, and a 2000 MB/s boost by increasing the speed.

Much like we saw in the copy numbers, the latency is average at best, but this time XMP 2 has a slight advantage over XMP1. The best way to lower latency is by reducing timings, but increasing the speed to 4000MHz also shows an advantage over either XMP option.

This combination loves Super Pi, as the results show the FURY taking all of the top slots. One and a half to two seconds faster than the next in line, the overclocked results are good, but the XMP profiles are where it's at, eating away at another half of a second over the NEO kit.

Looking for the best Physics results, we see the obvious answer is to opt for the XMP 1 profile to accomplish it. What is surprising is that the XMP 2 profile is where it is in the chart. Overclocking is better than using XMP 2, but there are a couple of 16GB kits that can still outperform them, one of them with less speed!

When it comes to PCMark 10, both of the XMP profiles come out near the bottom of the chart. There are gains to be had from overclocking this kit, but we are still over 20 points from the top of the chart.

7-Zip seems to like what HyperX delivered, as the boost in performance is significant, with just the XMP profiles being used. With more speed, time is cut by more than ten seconds, and lowering the timings reduces the run another eleven seconds on top of that!

Not the best when it comes to Cinebench, but the FURY still shows strong! XMP 2 is the best option to use here, and XMP 1 still gets a top-five result. Lowering the timings did not help much in the pursuit of the top of the chart, and overall speed took a hit in this benchmark.

Transcoding benefits from the density more than anything, but there is an instance where the FURY flounders in Handbrake, and that is with the use of the XMP 2 profile. XMP 1 delivered us chart-topping results, with not much gained increasing speed, but lowering timings dropped the overall time by over ten seconds!
