Team DARK Pro DDR4-3000 Benchmark Results

In benchmarking the Team DARK Pro DDR4-3000 16GB (8GBx2) kit, I used some of the popular benchmarking tools available, namely: AIDA64 Memory Benchmark, SiSoft Sandra and RealBench 2.4. The other memory kits mentioned on the graphs below were tested on the same motherboard. Below are the results I got during my tests.

AIDA64 Engineer
Memory bandwidth benchmarks (Memory Read, Memory Write, Memory Copy) measure the maximum achievable memory data transfer bandwidth. The code behind these benchmark methods are written in Assembly and they are extremely optimized for every popular AMD, Intel and VIA processor core variants by utilizing the appropriate x86/x64, x87, MMX, MMX+, 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, SSE4.1, AVX, and AVX2 instruction set extension.

The Memory Latency benchmark measures the typical delay when the CPU reads data from system memory. Memory latency time means the penalty measured from the issuing of the read command until the data arrives to the integer registers of the CPU.

SiSoftware Sandra Lite 2016
SiSoftware Sandra is a 32- and 64-bit client/server Windows system analyzer that includes benchmarking, testing and listing modules. It tries to go beyond other utilities to show you more of what is really going on under the hood so you draw comparisons at both a high and low-level in a single product. You can get information about the CPU, GPGPU, chipset, video adapter (GPU), ports, printers, sound card, memory, network, Windows internals even .NET and Java.

RealBench 2.4
Realbench is a benchmark that uses open source applications and simple scripting to simulate real-world performance of a PC system. It’s designed for to show the difference: Before and after a PC upgrade. To gauge the real effect of an overclock.

Based on the benchmark results I got, the Team Dark Pro DDR4-3000 was performing very well, as expected from a DDR4 memory kit clocked at 3000MHz. The DARK Pro was performing on par or almost similar with the more expensive Klevv Cras DDR4-3000, also using a SKhynix memory chip.

Memory latency and bandwidth shows good results as the DARK Pro had a faster bandwidth and lower latency compared to the most DDR4 kits included on the graphs above. But take note, the other DDR4 memory kits have a slower memory clock speeds and are running at their default XMP Profile setting.
