RAM speed in OSX vs. Windows 7

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Do you know why Novabench in OSX shows my RAM speed of 5237 MB/s but in Windows 7 Pro is 11,343 MB /s, more than 2 times faster ?

Thanks

Thanks for the report. I'll have to investigate this further. I can't think of an immediate cause of this, or whether it could be because of the hackintosh.

I notice a variation between OS's too. My Kingston HyperX Red RAM tests better in Win7 than Win8. My difference is nothing like what you are getting though. My Win7 scores are about 7000 +/- 300 while my Win8 scores are 6300 +/- 200. Does this mean that Win7 gets about 10% better performance out of the same RAM?

I have a dual-boot system so all the hardware is the same in these test.

That variation BTW is nothing compared to the over all scores.
