MSI Z77A-GD65 Motherboard Preview – Intel Z77 w/ Sandy Bridge
SiSoftware Sandra 2012 sp2 Memory Bandwidth
The Sisoft Sandra 2011 SP5 benchmark utility just came out a few weeks
ago and we have started to include it in our benchmarking. Sandra 2011 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 MSI Z77A-GD65 managed to eek past the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro in the SiSoftware Sandra 2012 Sp2 memory bandwidth test. We only talking about a difference of ~.05 GB/s across either of the tests. The MSI Z77A-GD65 averaged 21.251GB/s in the Float memory bandwidth tests and 21.242GB/s in the Integer memory bandwidth tests, the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro averaged 21.209GB/s on both of the tests.
