It's funny to see how a 2 x 2 GB DDR3-2000 MHz kit actually gives more bandwidth than a 3 x 2 GB DDr3-1333 MHz kit.
It's not just all about the memory - the speed has a big role in the game too!
(Translator's note: GB/s (Higher is better))
AIDA64 Extreme Edition
In the AIDA64 Extreme Edition test, the picture is the same. The fast 2 x 2 GB DDR3-2000 MHz kits have a higher bandwidth, compared to Exceleram EP3001A.
(Translator's note: MB/s (Higher is better))
We already know, that three modules will always give a higher latency, compared to one or two module setups, that run the same speed and timings. Even though EP3001A run at pretty loose timings, SiSoft Sandra and AIDA64 surprisingly low latencies. The memory latency is not something that should scare you away, unless you're a professional overclocker or enthusiast. We talk about nanoseconds - (ns) - which is a billionth of a second.
