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 GIGABYTE G1 Sniper 3 and Sniper M3 memory bandwidth performance in SiSoftware Sandra is right on par with our other Intel Z77 motherboards. Between these two motherboards from GIGABYTE, the Sniper M3 had a slightly higher performance. Though the performance difference isn’t anything that would be noticeable in day to day usage.
