Preliminary Benchmarks with SiSoft SANDRA 2007

Preliminary Benchmarks with SiSoft SANDRA 2007
Synthetic Testing

We began our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA 2007, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. SANDRA consists of a set of information and diagnostic utilities that can provide a host of useful high-level information about your hardware and OS. We ran four of the built-in subsystem tests that partially comprise the SANDRA 2007 Business suite (CPU, Multimedia, Memory and File System).

All of the scores reported below were taken with the Wildcat's processor running at its shipping clock speed of 2.6GHz and with the memory clocked at 400MHz. 

CPU 2.6GHz

Multimedia 2.6GHz

Memory 400MHz

Hard Disk - RAID 0
B X 2

While we like to use SANDRA to give a quick read on system performance from a synthetic standpoint, the results often yield little surprises.  In the case of the Systemax Wildcat, this trend remains consistent.  When compared to some of the systems in SANDRA's internal database, the Wildcat was on par with comparable reference machines in CPU, Multimedia and Memory performance.  The only standout difference was the Hard Disk scores, where the results were off the charts with two 10K Raptors set in RAID 0.  In the pages ahead we'll run a series of more intensive synthetic and real-world applications to help get a better handle on how the Systemax Wildcat performs compared to our extensive set of reference systems.
