Here you can download SiSoftware Sandra 2015 which includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers and networks.
SiSoft Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility.
SANDRA will provide most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software.
It works along the lines of other Windows utilities, however it tries to go beyond them and show you more of what's really going on. Giving the user the ability to draw comparisons at both a high and low-level. You can get information about the CPU, chipset, video adapter, ports, printers, sound card, memory, network, Windows internals, AGP, ODBC Connections, USB2, 1394/Firewire, etc.
SiSoftware Sandra, the latest version of the award-winning utility, includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, mobile devices and networks.
At SiSoftware from version to version we focus four key areas of software development to make sure we give our users the best software experience. Quite simply our four drivers are:
Inclusion of new technologies that ensure our tools remain current.
Increased hardware and software support for existing modules.
Improving the user interface to make it a richer easier user experience.
Filling gaps in the product line in response to our customers' needs.
This is a platform update release that includes tool, SDK and library updates. Overall, the benchmark scores should still be within variation range - at least on the platforms we have tested.
Support for Windows 10 Tech Preview
Updated to the latest tools & libraries for forthcoming Windows 10, with various minor compatibility changes and support for new APIs, technologies as well as hardware.
Will support DirectX 12.
Support for very-wide SIMD AVX-512 family.
Updated resources for high-DPI (retina+) up to 200% 192ppi or higher - e.g. huge 256x256 icons.
Updated System benchmark: Overall Score 2015
Removed .Net/Java Multi-Media (vectorised) benchmark as current JVM/CLR do not vectorise even today.
Added CPU Scientific (GEMM, FFT, N-Body), CPU Financial (Binomial, Monte Carlo, Black-Scholes) Analysis - while GPGPUs do accelerate these complex algorithms, wide-SIMD (e.g. AVX-512F) can significantly accelerate them in large CPUs with many cores and large caches (e.g. 12C+ 24MB L3/128MB L4)
Added GP Scientific Analysis (GEMM, FFT, N-Body) (using CUDA, OpenCL, DirectX Compute) - to match CPU Scientific
Updated weights to match modern devices (mobile, laptop, desktop and server)
Updated Crytography CPU Benchmark
Optimised AES HWA code-path for improved performance across hardware constrained by memory bandwidth.
Uptimised GP Benchmarks
GP Cryptography - optimised AES code-path.
GP Scientific - optimised N-Body path.
GP Financial - optimised Binomial Options path.
Updated CPU Multi-Media (SIMD) Benchmark
Combined score is now made of "combined integer (int32 and int64)" and "combined floating-point (single and double)" SIMD performance. Sandra 2014 used "int32 single-float and double-float" only.
Combined integer averages int32 (32-bit integer) and int64 (64-bit integer) SIMD performance (SSE, SSE2, AVX, AVX2) - and thus measure also 64-bit integer performance that is extensively used today.
int128 (quad-integer emulated) and quad-precision float-point (emulated, mantissa precision extended) is also measured but not included in the index as both are emulated at this time. Once native SIMD support is available in hardware, they will be added to the index.
Updated Memory Bandwidth Benchmark
Now reports average (rms - root mean sqare) not maximum performance. Some scores *will* be lower depending on the hardware, usually 3-5%. You can use the "maximum value" as index if you want to match Sandra 2014 and earlier.
Updated Cache & Memory Bandwidth Benchmark
Now reports average (rms - root mean sqare) not maximum performance. Some scores *will* be lower depending on the hardware, usually 5-20%. You can use the "maximum value" as index if you want to match Sandra 2014 and earlier.
All the fixes in 2014 and minor enhancements will be back-ported to 2014.SP4. So if you really need to stick with 2014, an update will be landing soon.
