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 1600MHz kit had 9% improvement in memory bandwidth over the 1333MHz memory kit with the same timings, whichis a 678 MB/Sec increase. By making the timings tighter the performance scores improved a tad more.
