SiSoftware, founded in 1995, is one of the leading providers of computer analysis, diagnostic and benchmarking software. The flagship product, known as “SANDRA”, was launched in 1997 and has become one of the most widely used products in its field. SANDRA is used by almost 400 world-wide IT publications, magazines, review sites to analyse the performance of today?s computers.
Multi-Core Support: As well as SMP (multi-processor) and SMT (multi-threading/Hyper-Threading) support we have added multi-core support for future AMD and Intel CPUs. The benchmarks have been optimised to schedule the optimum number of threads on the optimum (virtual) CPU on both multi-core and Hyper-Threaded computers.
As you can see the ASRock lags behind the Intel in memory bandwidth in all areas except for with the 533 strap where it’s just a bit faster. It’s much faster than any other memory setting on the ASRock has.
With tight results it’s easy to figure out that memory performance is not a deciding factor here.
In Multimedia performance the ASRock outpaces the Intel across the various memory settings we used, indicating again that this in not a memory intensive benchmark.
