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.
Cache and Memory
Power Management Efficiency
The performance of the Q9300 in the Sandra testing shows it falling behind the 45nm 9450 and 9770 in all but the memory bandwidth bench. Here it performed better than all the comparison CPUs but the QX9770. The Phenom and Q6600 were outperformed in all of the categories but the drive testing, where the similar components delivered comparable results.
