We have now completely gone over to SiSoftware Sandra 2003 when measuring memory bandwidth on mainboards. Earlier we also used CacheMem but certain compatibility problems has forced us to stop using that program.
We begin with the buffered memory benchmark which is the standard test in Sandra 2003. The serie 1 bar shows the Integer Stream performance while serie 2 shows the Float Stream performance.
The differences are as expected very small. Jetway gets the first place in total but the margin is minimal. The Albatron board is the one which performs worst and falls behind quite far. Let us move on to more realistic memory tests, unbuffered memory benchmark.
There are no great differences here either disregarding that the Shuttle board this time is much slower than the other boards which are close to each other. Here next comes the compression tests where we compress a large file on time to measure the systems performance.
