SiSoft Sandra Suite

SiSoftware Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is another benchmarking suite that has been around for several years and allows users from across the world to compare the performance of nearly every component in their system with similar hardware via their results database. For testing, I used version 2009 SP2 Lite.






Each test here confirmed what we saw in the Futuremark series of benchmarks: the benefit of four cores over two. Tests like this also give a nice insight into just how much overclocking helps with performance, a key factor for many when deciding on which CPU to buy.

Let's see if this tend continues as we take a look at Cinebench Release 10 next.
