Synthetic CPU and Memory Tests
SiSoft Sandra 2012
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.
Tradition dictates that we lead off our synthetic benchmarks with SiSoft Sandra 2012. This multi-faceted benchmark measures native processor and memory performance as well as other PC components. The Sabertooth X79 held its own against the X79-UD5 and X79A-GD65 (8D) in every category, and even posted better memory latency scores than its counterparts. This is the third time I have benchmarked these boards against one another, and the results have been very consistent.
