Hi all,

I've bought a new computer (Quad 2,4Ghz with 4GB fast memory 800Mhz DualChannel in 4 slots).

I had an P4 3,2Ghz Dual with 3Gb 533Mhz memory Dual Channel.

In Vista 64bit there is an performancetest and I used to get 5,5 points on the memory speed on the old computer with the slower memory, but now I get 5,3 points with my new fast memory, off course I'm puzzled by this fact as I think I should get 7-8 points now! And after checking with the staff at the shop I'm educated:
"Memorytests like that (the VISTA) cannot be trusted, and even if you get lower points now you actually have faster memory and better memoryperformance! It has to do with the timings of the memory and with higher Mhz on the memory the computer uses more delay in the timings and that shows up in performancetests like the one in VISTA"

I wonder, is there a place/program I can test my memory and compare it with others(maybe I should try PCMark)? And is this correct from the staff to you?

Sisoft Sandra has quite good test for memory performance. Sandra Lite is for free: http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/dload/sware_figure.php?langx=en&a=
Of course, for comparing a chess performance it is best to test your systems with your chess software.
