In terms of memory performance the QX9650 should be no better than the QX6850, however because we were unable to re-test the QX6850 using the Intel X38 chipset, what you see here is the QX9650 taking the lead thanks to the use of faster DDR3-1333 memory. As you can see, in SiSoft the memory bandwidth reached an impressive 7.5GB/s whereas the QX6850 was limited to 6.2GB/s by the DDR2-800 memory. Similar performance margins were also witnessed in PCmark2005 and MemTach.
