Sisoft Sandra XII SP2C just came out about a month ago and we have started to include it in out benchmarking, so our readers would be able to compare their modules to this kit if they are using the just released version of Sandra. With Sandra XII you can now easily compare the performance of the tested device with its speed and its (published) power (TDP)! Sandra XII also has SSE4 (Intel) and SSE4A (AMD) benchmark code-paths, which is great for those of you testing next-generation AMD & Intel chips.
Results: Sandra XII SP2c showed that the running the memory unlinked on the EVGA nForce 790i SLI Ultra motherboard didn’t have a big impact on the overall memory bandwidth at a 410MHz FSB. I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come as I would expect a difference! Just for fun I increased the FSB up to 462MHz to see if the extra bandwidth would help and it did!
