SiSoftware Sandra 2012 Sp1 Memory Bandwidth Benchmark

Sisoftware Sandra 2011 SP5

The Sisoft Sandra 2011 SP5 benchmark utility just came out a few weeks
ago and we have started to include it in our benchmarking. Sandra 2011 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!

ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Intel X79 Sandra 2012 SP1 Memory Benchmark Scores

Results: There is no doubt that the Intel X79 Express chipset brought with it some solid gains in memory performance. Having the ability to run the memory in quad channel is a great option, not to mention it is incredibly fast! The ASUS Rampage IV Extreme was able to edge out the GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 in both the Float and Integer Memory Bandwidth tests. Though we are looking at only a difference of .053GB/s or .13% in the Float Memory Bandwidth B/F AVX/128 test and .09GB/s or .22% in the Integer Memory Bandwidth B/F AVX/128 test. Clearly the margins are slim and wouldn’t pose any real world advantages.
