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

 

 

Here we can see that both the nVidia and ATI platforms perform almost identical in terms of memory performance. This is due to the fact the memory controller is on the CPU and not the chipset itself.
