A year ago, SiSoftware released Sandra 2010 with full support for Windows 7; in the 18 months since the launch of Windows 7, more than ever before we have seen the line blur between PC and entertainment hubs. Two months ago we released a Blu-Ray benchmark, now we have added a brand-new Media Transcoding benchmark using the new Media Foundation of Windows 7. We have also added yet another benchmark (GPGPU Cryptography) which allows direct comparison of CPU performance (using crypto instruction sets) and GPGPU performance.
Benchmark Results: The ASRock A75 Pro4 was able to edge out the memory bandwidth performance in our previous AMD Socket FM1 APU systems. During the Float Buff’d test the ASRock A75 Pro4 saw a bandwidth of 14.915GB/s, the Int Buff’d was able to push past the 15GB/s mark with a performance of 15.009GB/s. Between both series of tests the ASRock A75 Pro4 was ~.2GB/s faster than the previous boards.
