SANDRA isn’t always a benchmark that is included in hardware reviews but I believe it shouldn’t be ignored. SANDRA provides a vigorous package that tests your system in a rather large array of benchmarks. There are many aspects of benchmark that can be executed. We will be considering – CPU and memory tests.
Processor tests – Whilst the UD3P does fall back slightly in these tests – take note of the actual difference between each motherboard, it isn’t much at all. Overclocking provides an increase in bandwidth/processing power.
Memory tests- Whilst the results in this arena of testing are fairly nominal in difference the UD3P still performs consistently.
