SiSoftware, founded in 1995, is one of the leading providers of computer analysis, diagnostic and benchmarking software. The flagship product, known as “SANDRA”, was launched in 1997 and has become one of the most widely used products in its field. SANDRA is used by almost 400 world-wide IT publications, magazines, review sites to analyze the performance of todays computers.
Multi-Core Support: SMP (multi-processor) and SMT (multi-threading/Hyper-Threading) support has been added for future AMD and Intel CPUs. The benchmarks have been optimized to schedule the optimum number of threads on the optimum (virtual) CPU on both multi-core and Hyper-Threaded computers.
The pair of Intel Xeon X5365 processors on the Intel S5000XVN workstation board make short work of the other processors that we compared it to. The Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 comes in ahead of the slower clocked QX6750 as it should with a nice margin and the Intel E6750 had more mFlops, but less MIPS than the E6700.
The Intel QX6850 and E6750 really shined in the memory bandwidth test as the latest DDR3 memory from Kingston Technology with CL5 timings did very well compared to test systems.
