So, for this test which will be done with the AIDA64 software, I will compare the two platforms, AMD and Intel, since I used the same kit at the same frequency and with the same timings. AIDA has just seen its beta version evolve to 6.32.5659. It can be downloaded directly from the site but in order to benefit from all the results, you will need a license.
AIDA 64 :
It is a software capable of providing you with a lot of information about your configuration but it has the particularity of having a memory benchmark. It will calculate the read, write and copy speed as well as the latency of your memory kit. It is very often used to compare memory kits between them. It is an excellent tool if you want to compare the performance of your memory kit with those we have already tested. The version used for testing is v6.75.6121 beta, the latest version at the time of testing.
We knew that, as several leaks had suggested that the data rates, despite the switch to DDR5, would not be as good as on an Intel platform. So yes, it’s getting better, but it’s far behind what Alder Lake offers on the Z690 chipset. Our various contacts at the brands tell us that the next BIOS could improve these scores.
In writing, the trend is reversed and strangely enough, it is our Ryzen 5 7600X and Ryzen 7 7700X that are doing the best.
The same is true for copying, where the speed of our Ryzen 7000s has improved, but they are still not at the level of the Alder Lake and DDR5 combination.
We end on a positive note with a latency as announced by AMD in its slides under the 60 n/s mark. We will not hesitate to come back to the performance in AIDA64 if the next BIOS solve or improve these scores.
