Preliminary Benchmarks With SiSoft SANDRA 2007
Synthetic Testing Starts with SANDRA

We began our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. SANDRA consists of a set of information and diagnostic utilities that can provide a host of useful information about your hardware and operating system. We ran three of the built-in sub-system tests (CPU Arithmetic, CPU Multimedia, and Memory Bandwidth) that partially comprise the SANDRA 2007 suite of benchmarks. 

 

When compared against the Biostar SFF system and the Intel 945P reference platform within Sandra's database, we see that the Shuttle SD36G5M does a solid job of holding its own. Thanks the the various timing options within the BIOS, the user can experiment with more aggressive timings to maximize performance.

Viewing the Shuttle system's performance versus the baseline for the 3.6GHz processor being used, we see that the system is performing on par with expectations. Here, the Biostar SFF system's performance is called into question as the SD36G5M returns significantly higher scores.

The results from the CPU Multi-Media benchmark seemed to break convention as both the Shuttle and Biostar systems returned results which were higher than the baseline in Sandra's database. Overall, the SD36G5M has a commanding lead in this benchmark and is certainly showing its ability as a home theater PC.
