Synthetic System Benchmarks
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 use this to test the three primary systems: CPU Raw Performance, CPU Multimedia Execution Performance and Memory Bandwidth. This is all synthetic but still shows what can be accomplished.
The first two tests are simple. As expected, these two should almost be identical. If not, then there is a serious optimization path problem between the CPU and the Northbridge.
The Memory Bandwidth, on the other hand, is a totally different story. The Leadtek Motherboard, despite having a maximum theoretical throughput of 4.2GB/s, barely breaks it past 1.4GB/s. Compared to the DDR-333 KT333 chipset, you can see that nVidia has done a terrible job on the memory performance. It gets even worse when we used integrated graphics.
