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 areas of the motherboards.









Processor Arithmetic


Multi-Core Efficiency


Memory Bandwidth


Memory Latency


Cache and Memory


File System


Physical Disks


Power Management Efficiency


Sandra tests a system as a whole so a user can get a better idea of the complete setup instead of individual components. Even though the E8500 was not as fast as the Q6600, for having less L2 cache and half of the cores, it was a strong fight.
