GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC Force Motherboard Review
SiSoftware Sandra 2013
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 Z97X-SOC Force was able to edge out the competition for the Integer memory bandwidth title in SiSoftware Sandra Memory Bandwidth benchmark with an average performance of 28.04GB/s. The Float memory Bandwidth performance fell .03GB/s short of the ASUS Z97-Pro with an average of 28.14GB/s to 28.17GB/s.
