ECS Z77H2-AX ‘Golden Board’ Intel Z77 Motherboard Review
SiSoftware Sandra 2012 Sp3 Memory Bandwidth
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: The ECS Z77H2-AX Black Extreme memory performance in SiSoftware Sandra was a little bit below what we have seen on our previous Intel Z77 motherboards. In both of the memory bandwidth tests the ECS Z77H2-AX Black Extreme averaged ~20.86 Gb/s. Our fastest boards were nearly 1 Gb/s faster having an aggregate memory bandwidth performance of 21.77 Gb/s.
