Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra, Super Pi

SiSoft Sandra 2005 Source: Sandra

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system as well as the individual components. The results are also purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

Both dual-core processor boards display CPU benchmark numbers vastly higher than the other motherboards in the test, but memory bandwidth is slightly disappointing. We'll see if this causes problems for the Gigabyte GA-8I955X Royal in the rest of the benchmarks.

Super Pi Source: SuperPI

SuperPI calculates the number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The program allows the user to change the number of digits of PI that can be calculated from 16 thousand to 32 million. Our benchmark is set to 1 Million digits and 19 iterations.

The Gigabyte GA-8I955X Royal flexes some muscle here and edges past the rest of the pack. The dual-core processor appears to help here, given that both boards using the Pentium D finished first and second in this test. It's interesting to note that the 955X chipset knocks a second off SuperPi over that of the 945P based GA-8I945P Pro motherboard.
