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
Processor Arithmetic shows the motherboards getting nearly identical scores, with the P6T Deluxe trailing off in Whetstone. Multi-Core Efficiency is also a similar tale, with the exception of the older Eclipse having nearly twice the latency of the Eclipse Plus. Memory performance is above the other boards slightly, except in latency. The Eclipse Plus fit into the average in Power Management Efficiency. Hard drive performance is average, fitting in well with the other motherboards. Overclocking the system pushed the results into a far lead for the CPU, while the memory wasn't pushed much.
