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

 

 

We can see that the ASUS has done a slightly better job of doing up the memory controller settings than the Intel i955x reference board as well as a dramatic increase over the ASUS P5AD2-E (Intel 925XE), the P5WD2's predecessor.
