Kingston HyperX Genesis: LoVo 8GB DDR3 Kit (2x4GB) Review
HyperX LoVo Performance
AIDA 64 Cache & Memory Benchmark
SuperPi is a single threaded benchmark utility that simply calculates pi for us and records the time to calculate 32 million digits after the decimal point. It’s a fairly good CPU/memory stability testing tool as well.
In the SuperPi benchmark, the HyperX LoVo along with every other kit tested today sat well within the margin of error.
Our AIDA64 testing consists of three benchmarks: Queen, PhotoWorxx and AES. Queen involves measuring computer performance by calculating the Queens problem in chess, AES involves measuring computer performance through AES data encryption and Photoworxx measures computer performance through common tasks performed during photo processing.
In the AIDA64 benchmark, the HyperX LoVo scored on par with the similarly clocked Corsair Vengeance. When compared to the higher clocked Viper 3 and the HyperX Genesis, the HyperX LoVo does score a fair amount lower especially in the AES encryption benchmark and slightly lower in the PhotoWorxx benchmark as well.
x264 HD Benchmark v.5.0.1
x264 HD video tests how fast the system can encode a 1080p video into a high quality x264 video file. The most recent 5.0.1 release includes a more advanced benchmark script to stress test the newer multi-core processors.
In the HD video encoding benchmark, every kit tested today was able to perform on par with each other. Looking at the patterns though, it seems like the higher clocked memory scores a smidge bit faster on the first pass, but the lower latency memory tends to do a bit better in the second pass. The difference is marginal at best though.
