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.





Results Explained


Here, it is simple; tests of the CPU performance under synthetic conditions. These tests aren't really considered "Real-Life" as they offer only raw data of the CPU's core performances (FPU, ALU engines). Memory Benchmarks show that the increase in the FSB of the Pentium 4 to 533MHz does help quite a bit in synthetic tests. Will it hold up in real-world? Let's see.
