The Sisoftware Sandra 2012 SP3 benchmark utility just came out a few weeks ago and we have started to include it in our benchmarking. Sandra 2012 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!
Benchmark Results: The ASUS Z87-Pro was able to average 27.98GB/s and 27.86GB/s with the system running the Intel XMP profile and the rest of the settings on auto. Once we set the ASUS Z87-Pro to sync all cores like we have seen on the ASUS ROG Hero the bandwidth jumped to 28.08GB/s and 28.05GB/p. It isn’t a world breaking difference but nice to see a gain from such a simple settings.
