32-Bit CPU Synthetic Benchmarks: Sandra 2009 Memory

SiSoft Sandra 2009 - Memory Source: Sandra

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance. Higher bandwidth and lower latencies are best.

In these tests, higher bandwidth (GB/s) results and lower times (ns) are consider best - if you get confused, look to the Core i7 920, it sets the bar in each sub-test. AMD's socket AM2+ and AM3 processors have traditionally yielded a fair amount of latency communicating between cores, and the Athlon II X4 620 in particular suffers in the Multicore Efficiency Latency and Bandwidth benchmarks. The results improve when comparing the Memory Bandwidth that's achievable with HyperTransport versus the slower Front Side Bus of Intel's Core 2 Duo processors.

Scores in Windows 7 and Windows Vista are nearly identical here, which is expected during hardware benchmarks. Multicore efficiency and latency results are particularly uninspiring compared to the eight-thread Intel Core i7 920 CPU.
