SiSoft SANDRA Benchmarks

We began our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA 2014 the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. We ran four of the built-in subsystem tests that partially comprise the SANDRA 2014 suite with AMD's A10 Micro-6700T Discovery Reference Platform (CPU Arithmetic, Multimedia, Memory Bandwidth, and Cache Bandwidth).

System Level Benchmark


All of the scores reported below were taken with the processor running at its default clock speeds (max boost of 2.2GHz)  with 2GB of DDR3-1333 RAM and Windows 8.1 64-bit.

Processor Arithmetic

Processor Multimedia

Memory Bandwidth

Cache and Memory

The SANDRA numbers are not going to blow anyone away--this a low-power tablet platform after all--but the results are solid. Memory bandwidth was in the 5.2GB/s range, and the processor and cache related metrics showed the chip competing well with higher-power, Intel Pentium-class notebook processors.
