Benchmark Results: SiSoftware Sandra

System Builder Marathon, June 2010: System Value Compared

By singling out individual features of specific hardware, Sandra can help builders find specific weaknesses in a system that might otherwise perform satisfactorily.

It’s fun to watch the $550 system’s Athlon II X3 beat the $1,000 machine’s Phenom II X3 in Sandra’s CPU tests, at least before its builder successfully unlocked its fourth core. The $2,000 machine’s Core i7-930 is in a class by itself.

Sandra Memory Bandwidth results are sad for the overclocked AMD configurations, since we were expecting at least 14 GB/s from overclocked configurations.
