SiSoft SANDRA & Cinebench

SiSoft SANDRA 2011
GPU Number Crunching


SiSoft SANDRA is an information and diagnostic utility. It provides useful information about your hardware, software, and other installed devices. SANDRA gives you the ability to draw comparisons at both a high and low level. The SiSoftware GPGPU processing benchmark performs single- and double-precision floating point arithmetic on the GPU and the results are reported in pixels/s, i.e. how many pixels can be computed in 1 second.

SANDRA testing shows excellent performance in all areas. The SSD was particularly impressive, hitting 193MB/s read performance. 

Cinebench R11.5 64bit
OpenGL Performance

Cinebench R11.5

Cinebench R11.5 is an OpenGL 3D rendering performance test based on Cinema 4D from Maxon. The benchmark goes through a series of tests that measures the performance of the graphics card and CPU under real world circumstances. Within Cinebench, graphics card testing makes use of a complex 3D scene depicting a car chase which measures the performance in OpenGL mode.

What's most impressive here is how well the Core i5 performs compared to the competition. On the other hand, the NVS3100M can't keep up in OpenGL rendering tasks.
