Laptop RAM vs Desktop RAM

my Desktop:

i3 530 2.9 Ghz
2 x 2GB DDR3 1333 (value Kingston RAM)
H55 MB
IGP
64 bit win 7 home premium


my Laptop

i3 2330M 2.2 Ghz (2nd gen core i3)
2 x 2GB DDR3 1066 (standard value RAM)
MB - unknow
IGP
64 bit win 7 Ultimate


other scores:
HDD score: 5.9 (both)
CPU score: 6.9 (desktop) vs 6.5 (laptop)


<<<<<my question is my dektop got 7.0 in WEI RAM score but my laptop just get 5.9 in WEI RAM score.>>>>>

is that 1066 and 1333 that differ?


thanks.

  1. No, but there's other things going on. The primary thing is that although you allegedly testing just the RAM, processor speed will have an effect.
  2. but the cpu generation, mb chipset are not that differ.
    so how can the RAM score that differ.

    i don't mean they must have the same score. but they should have not differ like 1. score.

    thanks
  3. The score is heavily influenced by CPU performance since they are measuring memory operations per second (bandwidth).
    Bandwidth is the amount of data that can be transmitted in a fixed amount of time.
    You'd want to use some other benchmark besides WEI to get an accurate comparison.
  4. ok, so plz let me know what should i use.
    plz provide me download link to test cpu and memory. (mainly memory)

    i'm not that performance hog, but just for testing and knowledge purpose.

    thanks.
  5. Double check that Laptop Ram is running in dual channel mode. My laptop (i5-2410M) came with one 4 Gig Ram module and was runninging in single channel mode, WIE <6 (forgot exact score, but low). Added a 2nd stick, mode changed to dual channel and score shot up. More ram also contributes, but do not know the increase of going from 4 -> 16 Gigs.

    Yhis is not likely as you have 2 modules, But woth a double check.
  6. i'm sure it has 2 stick

    but they are both 1333 (sorry for 1066) but not the same spec in CPU-Z.

    1 stick come with factory default and another stick is seller add on.

    differing spec will affect on the preformance? and
    how to check dual channel mode or not.

    thanks,
  7. In CPU-Z, Click on memory. On right side it will show either Dual or Single for Channel #

    My Sandy Bridge I5-2410M.
    ..Channel # - Dual
    ..Dram Freq 665.7 -> 669 (1333)
    ..CL 9
    WEI = 7.4

    All WEI scores: 6.9, 7.4, 6.7, 6.7, 7.9
    .. 7.9 for HD is for Curcial 128 Gig M4 (Sata III) drive.
    .. 6.7 GPU scores are for 540m Gpu (also has the HD3000 IGP).
