Sandra is a very deep and detailed benchmark. It contains a massive list of available benchmarks, measurements and analytics.
First up we have the raw arithmetic performance tests. These test ignore the configuration, and pretty much utilize the full depth of the processor. The 8-core 5960X is on top, and rightly so. The 3960x also manages to hold strong, but the new 6700k overclocked does step on it’s toes at stock levels. Not bad for a quad-core vs an octa-core.
The Multimedia test here clearly favors the newer architecture and that shows the Gaming M5 overclocked matching the performance of the RVE with the 5960X. Very nice indeed!
The board takes another shocking jump from the middle to near top. Again, the new architecture does a great job providing better performance over the previous generation and also isn’t far of the 8-core 5960X giant.
