SiSoftware Launches Sandra 2009 with GPU Bench

Here at the HotHardware labs, we like to make use of SiSoftware's Sandra benchmarks for quick and dirty measurements on relative performance of a product versus another in its class.  While the benchmark suite is virtually all synthetic testing, we've found that results and measurements generally scale pretty well with real-world performance in many cases.  Regardless, this release nearly sneaked past us yesterday but it appears SiSoftware has launched Sandra 2009 and this time, they've stepped up to 3D graphics and GPGPU benchmarking as well.


London, UK, September 1st 2008 - We are pleased to launch SiSoftware Sandra 2009, the latest version of our award-winning utility, which includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers and networks....


Sandra Benchmark Modules


Sandra Video (GFX) Rendering Benchmark

New modules

  • Graphics (GPGPU) Processing: Benchmark the graphics performance of the graphics processors (GPGPUs). Such operations are used by specialized software, e.g. scientific software, image manipulation, video decoders/encoders, games that make GPU performance pretty important.

  • Graphics (GPGPU) Bandwidth: Benchmark the bandwidth of the memory of the graphics processors (GPGPUs) and the bandwidth of the bus that connects them to your computer. The speed at which the data can be sent to the GPGPUs, internally processed and the results sent back is as important as the processing power of the GPGPUs.

  • Video (GFX) Rendering: Benchmark the graphics performance of the video adapters (GFXs). Shows how your graphics processors handle rendering in comparison to other typical graphics processors. Such operations are used by all graphics software, image manipulation, video decoders/encoders, games and modern operating systems.

  • Video (GFX) Memory: Benchmark the bandwidth of the memory of the video adapters (GFXs) and the bandwidth of the bus that connects them to your computer.

  • Cryptographic Performance: Benchmark the cryptographic performance of modern processors that support hardware cryptographic engines. The most common algorithms, AES (AES128, AES256) for encryption/decryption and SHA (SHA1, SHA256) for hashing are supported.
