FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SiSoftware Sandra Titanium (2018) Released:
Brand-new benchmarks, hardware support
Articles & Benchmarks: None.
London, UK, April 27th 2018 – We are pleased to announce the launch of SiSoftware Sandra Titanium (2018), the latest version of our award-winning utility, which includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, mobile devices and networks.
We have added new Overall Performance benchmarks for all major components (CPU, GPGPU, Video/Graphics, Memory/Cache and Disk) and thus simplified the Overall Computer Performance benchmark.
We have added hardware support and optimisations for brand-new CPU architectures (AMD Ryzen 2, AMD Vega GPGPU, future Intel) not forgetting GPGPU architectures across the various interfaces (CUDA, OpenCL, DirectX ComputeShader, OpenGL Compute).
As SiSoftware operates a “just-in-time” release cycle, some features were introduced in Sandra 2017 service packs: in Sandra Titanium they have been updated and enhanced based on all the feedback received.
Broad Operating System Support
All current versions supported: Windows 10*, 8.1, 8, 7; Server 2019*, 2016, 2012/R2 and 2008/R2
Brand new Overall Performance Benchmarks allowing easy and complete device performance analysis without individually running all the benchmarks: now you need to run just one benchmarks that aggregates the results from all the component benchmarks.
Processor Overall Index
A combined performance index of all major CPU-related benchmarks: Multi-Media, Scientific Analysis, Financial Analysis, Image Processing, Multi-Core Efficiency.
GPGPU Overall Index
A combined performance index of all major GPGPU-related benchmarks: Processing, Scientific Analysis, Financial Analysis, Image Processing, Memory Bandwidth, Memory Latency.
Video/Graphics Overall Index
A combined performance index of all major video benchmarks: Shader Processing, Memory Bandwidth, Media Transcoding.
Memory/Cache Overall Index
A combined performance index of all major memory and cache-related benchmarks: Memory Bandwidth, Cache Bandwidth, Memory Latency.
Disk Overall Index
A combined performance index of all major disk-related benchmarks: File System Bandwidth, File System I/O, Physical Disk Bandwidth.
As a result, the Overall Compute Benchmark was simplified to be an aggregate of the component overall benchmarks:
Overall (2018) Computer Index
A combined performance index of all component overall indexes (CPU, GPGPU, Video/Graphics, Memory/Cache and Disk)
