SiSoft Sandra MAX3

 

SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) MAX3 is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.

 

 

All the motherboards are very close in our first test with the ABIT just taking the win in memory performance.

 

 

Moving over to the un-buffered score which removes optimizations we again see that ABIT just takes the win.

 

 

Here we see the Gigabyte motherboard take the win in the CPU department.
