  • Memory Mark speed dropped...

    3 months ago I built a new computer (5600X/2060/32GB DDR4/B550). About 2 months ago I ran Passmark full test (top pic). I just ran it again (bottom pic). My Memory Mark score dropped a good deal... I ran it multiple times 2 months ago and now, they were consistent each time. My 3D Mark is up because I changed out from a 2060 to a 3060Ti about a month ago. Other than that, nothing has changed, I haven't install much software.

    I ran the test after a reboot, before launching any programs. I waited a minute for any programs that run at startup to finish.

    The other variances are close enough.

    Any idea why that would happen?

    Can you post the individual results from the Memory Mark suite of tests.

      I ran a memory diagnostic test as well, no issues found. I did save a baseline from 2 months ago, but I can't load it. I am assuming because I have the evaluation version(can someone confirm that).

        I did install GeForce experience software when I installed the 3060Ti. FWTW.

          So all the memory tests appear to be a bit low for that hardware config, except the Read Cached & Available RAM results (which depend more on the CPU cache speed and amount of RAM installed respectively).

          So I would suspect there really is an issue of some sort.
          Are you sure the RAM is still in the right slots, XMP is on in BIOS and cooling is OK?

          Here is a example summary of how a bad RAM setup can impact the results.
          (your 5600X with DDR4 should be better than these results below)

            I figured it out, and good guess. The BIOS had reset itself for some reason and XMP was disabled (default). I will have to keep an eye on that, if it resets again, I'll worry about why it is doing that.

            It all looks good now I included the mem test again just for comparison.

              Good outcome.
              And this is exactly why it is good to use PerformanceTest and keep a baseline file.
