CyberPower Gamer Ultra 2098 Budget Gaming PC ReviewTue, Nov 01, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Sandra 2011 SP5 & CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1b
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 SP5 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!
The first benchmark that we always run on a PC is Sandra Memory Bandwidth and we found that the CyberPower Gamer Ultra 2098 with its 8GB of dual channel 1333MHz CL9 memory was able to have 10.44GB/s of both integer and floating memory bandwidth. Not bad for a budget gaming PC.
The Sandra Processor Arithmetic score was found to be right around 40.87 GOPS, which is very respectable for a PC in this price range. This is a free benchmark, so if you wanted to compare your system at home to this be sure to download Sandra 2011 SP5!
CrystalDiskMark is a small HDD benchmark utility for your hard drive
that enables you to rapidly measure sequential and random read/write
Benchmark Results: With
Crystal Mark v3.0.1 run with a file size of 1000MB the CyberPower Gamer Ultra 2098 does pretty well with sequential read and write speeds averaging 105 MB/s. The 4K random read and write speeds aren’t that great, but remember this system has a Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB hard drive inside and not a cutting edge and more expensive solid-state drive.
