SiSoft Sandra & CineBench

Preliminary Testing with SiSoft SANDRA 2011
Synthetic Benchmarks

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).

Processor Arithmetic


Memory Bandwidth

Physical Disks

In the SiSoft Sandra tests, the GT683R performs as we would have expected. The dual hard drive configuration certainly helps the system out in the Physical Disks benchmark. Keep in mind that other configuration options are also available for the GT683R, including an SSD configuration.

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 GT683R didn't score quite as well in the Cinebench R11.5 benchmark as it has in some of the other benchmarks, though it wasn't too far behind our other comparison systems.
