  We’re just getting our heads wrapped about Kaby Lake-X and Skylake-X (aka, the Core X-Series), and here we are staring at Coffee Lake. Coffee Lake represents the fourth and latest major iteration of Intel’s 14nm process, which started with Broadwell in 2014. Coffee Lake processors are set to debut in 2018, and will offer up to six cores for mainstream PCs. Today, we’re witnessing a supposed Coffee Lake-S chip in action via a SiSoft Sandra benchmark. The processor is identified as a Genuine Intel CPU 0000, which denotes an engineering sample. Other specifics regarding the processor identify... Read more...

Last month, SiSoftware released the 2012 edition of Sandra, the popular system analysis and benchmarking program. We recently sat down with Adrian Silasi, the creator and chief developer of Sandra, to discuss how he got started, how Sandra distinguishes itself in a crowded marketplace, and whether we'll see the utility popping up on other devices in the future. Before we hit the interview, a bit of introduction is in order. Sandra was one of the first popular benchmark suites, but it's evolved considerably over the past 14 years. While we tend to use it for straightforward CPU and memory tests,... Read more...
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....

NGOHQ has the latest addition of SiSoftware's Sandra in for review. Sandra 2007 comes with a new design, as well as some new benchmarks and features. "In case you have never heard of SiSoftware`s Sandra, it stands for `The System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant`. It was one of the first companies to incorporate all-in-one software that not only tells you what hardware you have in your computer, but also allows you to benchmark said hardware and compare it to other systems. That is not all however, since their first release... Read more...
