32-Bit CPU Synthetic Benchmarks: Sandra 2009 Processor / Memory

SiSoft Sandra 2009 - Processor 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 results are best.
