Patriot Viper Elite 3000 MHz 16GB (2x8GB) kit

Testing

The first benchmark program we will be running is the venerable SiSoft Sandra, a benchmark software package that we at Bjorn3D often like to use.

Sisoft Sandra Memory Bandwidth

Surprisingly, SiSoft Sandra has the Patriot Viper Elite kit scoring at the top of our list for memory bandwidth; it scored 35.58GB/s (Non-OC) and 37.37BG/s (OC) Integer and we recorded a 35.92BG/s (No-OC) and 37.7GB/s (OC) Float. In the memory bandwidth test you want to see higher numbers, since this means higher performance.

Sisoft Sandra Latency

In this next test we will examine the latency of the Viper Elite using the Sandra Memory Latency benchmark. In this test lower results are better, and with the stock settings we recorded a respectable 19.42ns, and when overclocked the number dropped to 19.17ns.

Sisoft Sandra Memory Cache

The final SiSoft Sandra test measures the Cache Bandwidth, and in this test the higher the scores the better. In this test we measured 195.07GB/s at stock XMP settings and 199.27GB/s when overclocked to 3200 MHz.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.

Crucial P5 Plus 2TB

The Crucial P5 Plus is the successor the P5 that Crucial launched last year and is the first PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD from the company. The latest model dropped the 256GB model, so the starting available capacity for the P5 Pro is 500GB. Additionally, the drive is also available in 1TB and a new storage capacity of 2TB model. The P54 Plus is priced similar to the P5 though there is a slight bump in the price where drive is retailed at $107.99(500GB), $179.99(1TB), and $367.99(2TB). The 2TB model is definitely a welcome addition and if we judge by the price per gigabyte, the 1TB model would be the most economical option. Despite the slight bump in the price, the P5 Plus are still priced competitively against its competitors. The question is, just how well would the performance backing it up? We shall find it out today.

  1. Wow $75 for a 2x8gb kit. I would’ve killed for that recently!
