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 X4 905e and Phenom II X3 705e have respectable memory bandwidth test results as shown above with both processors running DDR2 1066MHz with 5-5-5-15 timings,
