Windows 7: What's your memory assessment speed?

mie333 asked: "mine is this, can anybody tell me what it suppose to mean? i dont know the purpose of this memory assessment "

The purpose of such tests is to assess the how fast data can be written to or read from memory. As you know, CPU is the fastest component in a computer. Next fastest is memory (unless you have special CACHE ...which is also a memory - just special purpose). generally, it's 10's of order of magnitude slower. To compensate for the slowness, memory modules deploy interfaces that allow multiple simultaneous accesses (on a macro scale) via multiple channels. In parallel, motherboard & CPU architectures have changed (specially after the advent of multicore technology) to increase the data width (bus) to 64 bits and shifting the Northbridge (memory controller) logic to CPU and allowing multiple CPU's simultaneous access to memory. All this means that memory access (leading to overall speed of the computer) being faster & more data from memory being available quicker than before.

In isolation, these tests mean nothing. But compared to certain established baseline (say, the slowest computer you have), they indicate how fast the new computer will be....in as much as memory access is concerned.

One should be very careful here in comparing apples with apples as the results can sometimes be misleading if the test set up is not configured correctly. For example, if a test uses a single thread & thus uses only one CPU , or the coding somehow forces use of single channel on a computer with multicore processors and multichannel memory, the result -on the face of it - would be outright wrong.
