Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB DDR4 2666MHz (15 17 17) Dual Channel Review (HX426C15FBK2/16)

Sisoft Sandra

SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility. It should provide most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software. Sandra is a (girl) name of Greek origin that means “defender”, “helper of mankind”. We think that’s quite fitting.

It works along the lines of other Windows utilities, however it tries to go beyond them and show you more of what’s really going on. Giving the user the ability to draw comparisons at both a high and low-level. You can get information about the CPU, chipset, video adapter, ports, printers, sound card, memory, network, Windows internals, AGP, PCI, PCIe, ODBC Connections, USB2, 1394/Firewire, etc.



The Memory Cache Bandwidth test in Sisoft Sandra puts the Kingston kit in at 0.06GB/s faster which is really not enough difference to do anything but call it a tie.


Cryptographic Bandwidth both kits came in at 9.92GB/s which gives you and idea of raw Speed VS Timings, raw speed is good within boundaries but often tighter timings will give you the same gain.


The Memory Bandwidth portion of Sandra shows the faster HyperX Fury kit out in front by a couple of points which in this case are large GB sized points. Given it’s speed advantage the Kingston HyperX 2666MHz kit pulled a couple of GB/s faster than the crucial kit.


The memory Latency test shows the Kingston kit 2.4ns faster but we are talking “nano seconds” so in human perceptible terms no difference.
