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 EVGA Z77 FTW memory bandwidth performance in SiSoftware Sandra isn’t far off from what we have seen previously. Our fastest board is the MSI Z77A-GD65 with an aggregate performance of 21.771GB/s while the EVGA Z77 FTW brought an aggregate memory bandwidth performance of 21.439GB/s. That’s a difference of only 1.5%, which isn’t much of anything to be concerned about.
