SiSoftware Sandra 2012 SP2 Memory Bandwidth

Sisoftware Sandra 2012 SP2

The SiSoft Sandra 2012 SP2 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 performance!

Intel R2000GZ 'Grizzly Pass' Sandra 2012 SP2 Memory Benchmark Scores

Benchmark Results: The Intel Grizzly Pass server has an impressive 128Gb of memory in a quad channel configuration. That’s 64Gb of RAM for each of the Intel Xeon E5-2660 CPUs to work with. Looking at the results above we can see that we topped out at 72.372GB/s on the Integer memory bandwidth test and 73.436GB/s on the Float Memory bandwidth test. In comparison our Intel X79 test bench is typically just above 40GB/s on both tests.
