SiSoft Sandra & CineBench

We continued our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA 2011, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant.  We ran four of the built-in subsystem tests (CPU Arithmetic, Memory Bandwidth, Physical Disks).

Preliminary Testing with SiSoft SANDRA 2011
Synthetic Benchmarks

All of the scores reported below were taken with the processor running at its default clock speeds of 2.4GHz and with 12GB of DDR3-1333 RAM running in dual-channel mode.

Processor Arithmetic


Memory Bandwidth

Physical Disks

SiSoft Sandra wasn't able to uncover any weak spots in the P180HM's main subsystems, and that's because there really aren't any. Between having a quad-core processor, 12GB of fast system memory, and a crazy-fast SSD, the P180HM is ready to rumble. Check that physical disk score on the bottom right.  440MB/s is none too shabby.

Cinebench R11.5 64bit
Content Creation Performance

Maxon's Cinebench R11.5 benchmark is based on Maxon's Cinema 4D software used for 3D content creation chores and tests both the CPU and GPU in separate benchmark runs. On the CPU side, Cinebench renders a photorealistic 3D scene by tapping into up to 64 processing threads (CPU) to process more than 300,000 total polygons, while the GPU benchmark measures graphics performance by manipulating nearly 1 million polygons and huge amounts of textures.


The P180HM scored about as well as we're ever going to see in Cinebench, or at least that's the case for the foreseeable future. Cinebench has a tendency to knock systems around and then kick them while they're down, but in this case, the P180HM put up a heck of a good fight.
