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 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 optimized to schedule the optimum number of threads on the optimum (virtual) CPU on both multi-core and Hyper-Threaded computers.
Our Sandra Multi-Media testing shows that our Gigabyte P35-DS3R with the new Intel P35 chipset falls right in line with the other boards that are represented.
We see the same results in the Sandra Arithmetic testing. The Gigabyte P35 board hangs with all the other boards. THis should not be too surprising, as we rarely see mush of a difference between boards at default settings.
