Channel Performance: Synthetic

The performance did not suffer all that much when disabling triple-channel memory support in WinRAR. In fact, with a single DDR3-1333 module installed, performance was barely affected.

The PCmark Vantage music test is also unaffected by the removal of two memory modules. The gaming test saw a 400pt drop when going from three modules to just one, though given the circumstances, this was hardly a significant loss.

Finally, the CINEBENCH R10 performance is again almost unaffected by the removal of up to two memory modules, as the OpenGL rendering test drops just over 100pts, and the multi-CPU rendering test less than 200pts.
