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: There is very little performance difference in SiSoftware Sandra 2011c. The ASUS P8Z68-V Pro was slightly behind in both the Float and Integer Buff’d bandwidth tests, though only by ~.5%. Not a difference that would affect daily performance.
