Synthetic CPU and Memory Tests
SiSoft Sandra 2011
The latest version of SiSoft Sandra offers up a lot of new features including compatibility updates for Sandy Bridge processors, media transcoding enhancements, Blu-Ray, and expanded GPGPU support.
In our first set of benchmarks, the X79-UD5 matched up pretty well against the X79A-GD65 (8D). We evaluate many aspects of each motherboard through SiSoft Sandra, and the Gigabyte board was on par with its MSI counterpart in every test except the multicore efficiency benchmark where it was a full gigabyte per second faster in performance. The rest of the benchmarks results were almost identical.
