The Sisoft Sandra XII SP1 benchmark utility just came out a couple months ago and we have started to include it in out benchmarking. With Sandra XII SP1 you can now easily compare the performance of the tested device with its speed and its (published) power (TDP)! Sandra XII SP1 also has SSE4 (Intel) and SSE4A (AMD) benchmark code-paths, which is great for those of you testing next-generation AMD & Intel chips.
Results: With both systems set to run at 800MHz with 4-4-4-12 2T timings, Sandra XII SP1 showed that the AMD 690G platform was the faster platform. The 690G was 5.67% faster than the 780G chipset, but remember the AMD 690G platform is over a year old and has perfected BIOS revisions.
