Memory Performance

The overclocked ASUS P5W DH Deluxe configuration offered an impressive 7.6 GB/s of memory bandwidth. This means that the overclocked system provided 34% more bandwidth when utilizing DDR2-1100 rather than DDR2-800.

The ASUS P5W DH Deluxe and Gigabyte 965P-DQ6 were fairly evenly matched for memory bandwidth, which was surprising since the ASUS board sports the 975X chipset. All three memory benchmarks showed similar results.
