Tuning For Better MemTweakIt Scores

X-ROG

http://rog.asus.com/135582012/overclocking/tuning-for-better-memtweakit-scores/

If you’re getting into MemTweakIt with your P67/Z68/Z77 ASUS motherboard, you will want to read up on how exactly the scores are calculated in order to get a better result. MemTweakIt is designed not as a hardcore competitive tweaking program, but rather the algorithms are setup for a more fun approach that promotes real tweaking efforts, rather than just buying or binning the fastest kit.

A, B, C & D are principle factors in MemTweakIt’s scoring, and each has relative weighting. It’s also worth noting the code does not treat Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge or Sandy Bridge-E CPUs equally, due to architecture differences.

Intel ‘Ivy Bridge’ 3rd Generation Core Processors on LGA1155



DRAM frequency has a high weighting, while A looks at the the baseclock is multiplied by the ratio used:

float A = _pTSet->m_fBCLK * _pTSet->m_fRatio;

Set B checks the primary timings (CR = Command Rate).

float B = _pTSet->m_fCL + (float)_pTSet->m_itRCD + (float)_pTSet->m_itRP + (9.0f * (float)_pTSet->m_iCR);

C & D check the secondary and tertiary timings, and has the lowest weighting;

float C = (float)(_pTSet->m_itRAS + _pTSet->m_itRRD + _pTSet->m_iREFCycleTime + _pTSet->m_iRefreshInterval + _pTSet->m_itWTR + _pTSet->m_itRTP + _pTSet->m_itCKE + _pTSet->m_itFAW + _pTSet->m_itWR + _pTSet->m_itWCL);

float D = (float)(_pTSet->m_iTRRDR + _pTSet->m_iTRRDD + _pTSet->m_iTWWDR + _pTSet->m_iTWWDD + _pTSet->m_iTRWDRDD + _pTSet->m_iTWRDRDD + _pTSet->m_iTRWSR);

Overall the calculation is as follows:

_pTSet->m_fEfficiency = (A * 127500.0f) / (53.0f * B + 0.6f * C + 20.0f * D);

Then, finally, if you run in dual chanel with an Ivy Bridge CPU, the score will be multiplied by 1.92x compared to single channel.

if (_pTSet->m_iNbChannels == 2) _pTSet->m_fEfficiency *= 1.92f;

Intel ‘Sandy Bridge’ 2nd Generation Core Processors on LGA1155



DRAM frequency has a high weighting, while A looks at the the baseclock is multiplied by the ratio used:

float A = _pTSet->m_fBCLK * _pTSet->m_fRatio;

Set B checks the primary timings (CR = Command Rate).

float B = _pTSet->m_fCL + (float)_pTSet->m_itRCD + (float)_pTSet->m_itRP + (9.0f * (float)_pTSet->m_iCR);

C & D check the secondary and tertiary timings, and has the lowest weighting;

float C = (float)(_pTSet->m_itRAS + _pTSet->m_itRRD + _pTSet->m_iREFCycleTime + _pTSet->m_iRefreshInterval + _pTSet->m_itWTR + _pTSet->m_itRTP + _pTSet->m_itCKE + _pTSet->m_itFAW + _pTSet->m_itWR + _pTSet->m_itWCL);

float D = (float)(_pTSet->m_iTRRDR + _pTSet->m_iTRRDD + _pTSet->m_iTWWDR + _pTSet->m_iTWWDD + _pTSet->m_iTRWDRDD + _pTSet->m_iTWRDRDD + _pTSet->m_iTRWSR);

Overall the calculation is as follows:

_pTSet->m_fEfficiency = (A * 127500.0f) / (53.0f * B + 0.6f * C + 20.0f * D);

Then, finally, if you run in dual chanel with an Sandy Bridge CPU, the score will be multiplied by 1.8x compared to single channel.

if (_pTSet->m_iNbChannels == 2) _pTSet->m_fEfficiency *= 1.8f;

Intel ‘Sandy-Bridge-E’ 3rd Generation Core-i7 Processors on LGA2011



Due to the fact LGA2011 is quad-channel, not dual-channel, an additional Z-factor for total DRAM size is added while channel count is removed. The rest is largely the same. As before, DRAM frequency has a high weighting, while A looks at the the baseclock is multiplied by the ratio used:

float A = _pTSet->m_fBCLK * _pTSet->m_fRatio;

Set B checks the primary timings (CR = Command Rate).

float B = _pTSet->m_fCL + (float)_pTSet->m_itRCD + (float)_pTSet->m_itRP + (float)(_pTSet->m_iT_CCD) + (9.0f * (float)_pTSet->m_iCR);

C & D check the secondary and tertiary timings, and has the lowest weighting;

float C = (float)(_pTSet->m_itRAS + _pTSet->m_itRRD + _pTSet->m_iREFCycleTime + _pTSet->m_iRefreshInterval + _pTSet->m_itWTR + _pTSet->m_itRTP + _pTSet->m_itCKE + _pTSet->m_itFAW + _pTSet->m_itWR + _pTSet->m_itWCL);

float D = (float)(_pTSet->m_iTRRDR + _pTSet->m_iTRRDD + _pTSet->m_iTWWDR + _pTSet->m_iTWWDD + _pTSet->m_iT_WRDR + _pTSet->m_iT_WRDD + _pTSet->m_iTRWSR); float Z = (float)dsize;

Overall the calculation is as follows:

_pTSet->m_fEfficiency = 2.1f * ((A * 127500.0f) + (Z * 1000.0f)) / (53.0f * B + 0.6f * C + 20.0f * D);

Post your mem tweak it CPU-Z screen shots for auto and Tuned then its possible to advise you further.

how do people get to the crazy numbers like 200000? I saw a while ago people had a few scores like that with giel and such. I have basically given up since I can only get as high as 42693 on my c1 3930k
