The Sisoft Sandra 2010 benchmark utility was released a few weeks ago and we have started to include it in our benchmarking. Sandra 2010 now comes with support for Virtualization (Virtual PC/Server, Hyper-V, VMware) and GPGPU (OpenCL, DirectX 11 Compute Shader/DirectCompute). Today we will be utilizing Sandra 2010 to look at memory bandwidth performance!
Benchmark Results: SiSoftware Sandra 2010 shows that the GIGABYTE GA-X58-USB3 has the lowest memory bandwidth performance of all of our X58 motherboards. Though it is nearly double the performance of our AMD Phenom II X6 1055T system thanks to the triple channel memory.
