 Preliminary Testing with SiSoft SANDRA 2010
 Synthetic Benchmarks

We began our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA 2010, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. We ran three of the built-in subsystem tests that partially comprise the SANDRA 2009 SP4 suite: Processor Arithmetic, Multimedia, and Memory Bandwidth.

     

The SANDRA results tell us that the E205's Core i5-430M processor is a middling performer, as least as far as Intel's new Core i5 and Core i7 architectures go. Compared against older Intel CPU architectures or AMD's offerings, however, the Core i5-430M is a worthy competitor. For instance, the E205's Aggregate Arithmetic Performance score of 28GOPS (Giga Operations Per Second) is just barley behind that of a reference Core 2 Quad Q6600's score of 29.77GOPS. In our Core i5 article, the Core i5-540M scored 33.71GOPS. And with memory running at 1,066MHz with both the E205 and the Core i5-540M test laptop, both systems got very close to the same Aggregate Memory Performance score, with the E205's 9.18GB/s actually just edging out the Core i5-540M's 9.0GB/s.
