SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.
 
 
 
 

SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers. It’s lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching. Once again, testing was performed a total of 5 times, with an average being calculated from the middle three results.

 
 
 

 

PassMark is a popular benchmarking suite which test all aspect of PC hardware.The CPU test examines Mathematical operations, compression, encryption, SSE, 3DNow! instructions and more. Each CPU test was performed a total of 5 times, with an average being calculated from the middle three results.

 
 
 
Results Analysis
 
The UD3R performed below par throughout the number of CPU tests. SuperPi was a definite weakness for the motherboard though scoring below average in all of the iterations as was Passmarks CPU tests, mirroring the UD4P’s score.
 
Let’s see if the different memory setup affects performance in our memory benchmarks…
