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 analyse the performance of today?s computers.
Multi-Core Support: As well as SMP (multi-processor) and SMT (multi-threading/Hyper-Threading) support we have added multi-core support for future AMD and Intel CPUs. The benchmarks have been optimised to schedule the optimum number of threads on the optimum (virtual) CPU on both multi-core and Hyper-Threaded computers.
Talk about your sick scores! Those QX6700 scores are just incredible! Even the E6700 does not come close to mathing its big brother here, though it does come in second, leading the FX-62, 5000+ and the 965EE respectively.
Our Memory badwidth results should be no surprise. The the memory controllor on the AMD chip, it continues to show its muscle here. It is interesting to see that the 965EE scores better than both the X6800 and E6700 in Sandras bandwidth bench.
In Sandra’s Multimedia test, we see another huge gulf in the results between the new Core 2 Duo chips and the rest of the pack. The 965EE comes in a distant third, with the two AMD chips following even further behind.
