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 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 GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 was just barely behind the performance of the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme. We are looking at a difference of .13% on the Float memory Bandwithd B/F AVX/128 test and 1.1% on the Integer Memory Bandwidth B/F AVX/128 test. These slight differences wouldn’t be noticeable in day to day operations.
