Sandra and 3DMark Testing
SiSoftware Sandra 2010 SP1d
The Sisoft Sandra 2010c benchmark utility just came out a few weeks ago and we have started to include it in our benchmarking. Sandra 2010 now 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!
2010 SP1d showed that each 266MHz increase to the memory clock gave use roughly 3GB/s more bandwidth. At the kits rated 1866MHz with CL9 timings we were able to break the 23GB/s mark, which is 36% more bandwidth than we had at 1333MHz.
3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware. 3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.The Entry settings were used for testing, so a resolution of 1024x768 was used.
