I have installed a new RAM in my laptop and want to compare performance of individual RAM's. Is there any tool that allows me to test speed of individual RAM's.

You can use Memtest86+:

  • free
  • Bootable program (so that it can fully test the RAM without being annoyed having some OS in RAM at the same time)

enter image description here

Note that if you have 1 RAM at 1333 and 1 RAM at 1600, it would just run at 1333: RAM will always run at the speed of the slowest stick. Same for the latency: the highest latency will be used by both RAM sticks. As a result the only way to compare individual RAM is to manually add/remove them from your computer and run a speed test on each of them.

Too bad for me. I can't open RAM myself from my laptop :( Anyway, thanks for answer – VarunAgw Apr 25 '14 at 16:47
@VarunAgw How did you install the new RAM if you can't access it with your laptop? – Overv Apr 25 '14 at 19:00
@Overv The shop owner where I purchased the RAM did the whole work. – VarunAgw Apr 25 '14 at 19:33
