Mind you guys that SiSoft issued a new update of Sandra today, in order to fix various issues reported by SP3 users. We are now at build 15.99 SP3c.
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.
So what's new in it for you? 1. Support for Windows 7 RTM, built and tested with the latest Windows 7 tools. 2. New OpenCL GPGPU benchmarks: complete set of OpenCL benchmarks in addition to the existing CUDA & STREAM versions:
Computational performance: float (32-bit) and double (64-bit), native and emulated.
Memory bandwidth performance: internal and transfer to/from card(s).
Multi-GPU card support, including asymmetric load balancer (e.g. a faster/powerful card and a slow/little card) with different loads distributed to the cards depending on their power.
For nVidia GPUs with 185.85 driver in XP 32/64 and Vista 32/64 but NOTHING ELSE. Don't try a newer driver, some things won't work and we cannot get them to work for you.
DirectX 11 CS: this will have to wait until the necessary drivers come out.
AMD STREAM 2.0 CPU: we do not have plans to implement this at this time.
nVidia CUDA 2.3: this will have to wait until more drivers come out; at this time only 1 desktop driver supports this.
3. New OpenGL GFX benchmarks: complete set of OpenGL benchmarks with the same workload as the existing DirectX (9, 10, 10.1) benchmarks supporting OpenGL 2.0 and later. DirectX 11 SM5.0: this will have to wait until the necessary drivers come out. 4. Support for new instruction sets in benchmarks: Cryptography: Intel AES new instructions; SHA/256 hashing using SSE4.1 Multi-Media: Intel AVX new instructions
The new build is 15.124 SP3 and is mirrored here at Guru3D.com
