The Sisoftware Sandra 2012 SP3 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 and CPU performance!
Benchmark Results:We aren’t surprised that there isn’t a huge difference between the Intel Z77 Motherboards. All three of our boards were set to the Intel XMP enabled, so the performance should be near identical. Interestingly though, the GIGABYTE Z77-DS3H was slightly behind the BIOSTAR TZ77B and the ASRock Z77 Pro3 motherboards. The Z77-DS3H was only down by ~.15-.18Gb/s which is under 1%.
