SiSoft Sandra 2011 sp2 Memory Bandwidth
A year ago, SiSoftware released Sandra 2010 with full support for Windows 7; in the 18 months since the launch of Windows 7, more than ever before we have seen the line blur between PC and entertainment hubs. Two months ago we released a Blu-Ray benchmark, now we have added a brand-new Media Transcoding benchmark using the new Media Foundation of Windows 7. We have also added yet another benchmark (GPGPU Cryptography) which allows direct comparison of CPU performance (using crypto instruction sets) and GPGPU performance.
Benchmark Results: The MSI 990FXA-GD80 memory bandwidth performance was able to out perform the ASRock 890FX Deluxe4 motherboard by 4.5% in the SiSoftware Sandra 2011 Sp2 memory bandwidth performance benchmark.
