SiSoft Sandra 2002 SP1


SiSoft Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) 2002 is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems. We used this to test CPU Raw Performance, Multimedia Instruction Set and Memory Bandwidth Performance. While they are all synthetic results, they do give us a general idea of what is happening and where a component's strengths and weaknesses are.





When running DDR-266 memory, you can see the performance hit that the system takes due to the video card using system memory for its frame buffer. When DDR-333 is used, the performance gap is closed, since the GPU is given more power to work with.
