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 ASUS F1A75-M Pro didn’t quite compete with the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro memory bandwidth. The ASUS P8Z68-V Pro was able to average 20+GB/s in both tests while the ASUS F1A75-M Pro averaged 14.655/14.782GB/s. One thing worth noting, although two different versions of Sandra 2011 the ASUS F1A75-M Pro was able to squeeze more memory performance out of the Corsair Vengeance kit than the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX was able to by nearly 2GB/s!
