For our EVEREST tests, I am using a slightly older version. The latest version out is 2.80, but the results are very inflated compared to last years version, which is why I refrain from using it. It just doesn’t make sense that 2.22 can show a read speed of 8,000MB/s while 2.80 shows 10,000MB/s. Since 2.22’s results are more in line with our SANDRA results, we will stick to it.
Note: Read and Write (Higher the better) and Latency (Lower the better).
SM 2 is a benchmarking tool I only recently found out about. What’s great about it, is that it can spit out the usual MB/s results in addition to an overall ‘Sciencemark’. The Sciencemark bases it’s result on various criteria including the speed and latencies of the modules.
Once again, the results are top rate and very comparable to other performance modules.
