4. SiSOFT Sandra
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility. It should provide most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software. It works along the lines of other Windows utilities, however it tries to go beyond them and show you more of what's really going on. Giving the user the ability to draw comparisons at both a high and low-level. You can get information about the CPU, chipset, video adapter, ports, printers, sound card, memory, network, Windows internals, AGP, PCI, PCIe, ODBC Connections, USB2, 1394/Firewire, etc.
Sisoft Sandra offers two tests, un-buffered and buffered. We summed both results and divided by two to get the average.
The Crucial PC2-8500 modules are faster due to their lower timings. Both the GSkill and OCZ modules have exactly the same timings, so there is a direct comparison there. We can see that at the 800, 1067 and 1150MHz speeds, the OCZ PC2-8500 SLI is faster than the GSkill FP2-8500.
