Motherboard Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra, Super Pi

SiSoft Sandra XII 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.

The Foxconn DigitaLife X38A performs as expected here in SiSoft Sandra. Latency is much better with DDR2 memory as is bandwidth which is a bit surprising, let's check out what the other tests have to say.

Super Pi Mod 1.5 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.

Super Pi results are interesting, in the 1 million testing all motherboards and memory standards perform the same. The lower latency DDR2 memory standard is obviously faster in the 8 million digit tests than the DDR3 RAM used with the Foxconn Digitalife X38A motherboard.
