SiSoftware SANDRA XII Results

Synthetic Benchmarks

We continued our testing with SiSoftware's SANDRA XII, the System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant. We ran three of the built-in subsystem tests that partially comprise the SANDRA XII suite on the test motherboards (CPU Arithmetic, CPU Multimedia, and Memory). All of the scores reported below were taken with the processor running at its default clock speed of 2.13GHz with DDR2-800MHz RAM, operating in Linked mode.

Because these first two benchmark modules are CPU-related performance tests, we weren't surprised at all by these results. All three setups post scores that are nearly identical.

Once again, the memory score is affected by the use of the onboard graphics. Additionally, even with the 8800 GT installed the MG-630I-7159 can't keep up with the Abit 650i because the MG-630I-7159 uses a single channel for memory whereas the 650i supports dual channel operation. With that said, we are a little surprised the performance gap isn't a bit wider.
