Sandra 2009 Memory Bandwidth
Sisoft; Sandra 2009:
The Sisoft Sandra 2009 benchmark utility just came out recently and we have started to include it in our benchmarking. With Sandra 2009 you can now easily compare the performance of the tested device with its speed and its (published) power (TDP)! Sandra XII SP2 also has SSE4 (Intel) and SSE4A (AMD) benchmark code-paths, which is great for those of you testing next-generation AMD & Intel chips.
Results: Sandra 2009 SP2 showed that the AMD Phenom II X2 550 and the Athlon II X2 250 have roughly the same memory bandwidth (10,875 MB/s) when running 1066MHz memory.
