The Sisoftware Sandra 2012 SP3 benchmark utility just came out a few weeks
ago and we have started to include it in our benchmarking. Sandra 2012 comes with
support for Virtualisation (Virtual PC/Server, Hyper-V, VMware) and
GPGPU (OpenCL, DirectX 11 DirectCompute), but today we will be using the
program to look at memory and CPU performance!
Benchmark Results: The AMD A10-5800K was the slowest of the three contenders in the SiSoftware Sandra 2012 memory bandwidth test. The A10-5800K had an aggregate memory bandwidth of ~14.3GB/s, the first generation APU A8-3870K was ~.8GB/s faster on average.
