Synthetic System Benchmarks - Sandra 2002


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.





Here we see the first two shows very little difference (both boards optimized for P4). It's only in the memory that we see the board phase out against the SiS 645.


Note: We used offboard video to test this so the video card wouldn't be the bottleneck in the full system speed tests.
