SiSoft Sandra is a diagnostic utility and synthetic benchmarking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, I will be running a broad spectrum of tests to gauge the performance of key functions of the CPUs.
Cache and Memory
Power Management Efficiency
For the majority of the Sandra tests, the Triple and Dual core come in behind the Quad Cores, except where memory is key, at which point the X3 435 overtook the Athlon II X4 620 processor by a bit or matched it. For the hard drive performance, the Athlon II series was almost uniform throughout.
