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. Sandra is a (girl) name of Greek origin that means “defender”, “helper of mankind”. We think that’s quite fitting.
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.
The Sandra Cache/Memory test has the Crucial Ballistix Sport at 197.36GB/s trailing the Kingston kit by well almost nothing. The difference in speed on this test is so minuscule it has to be called a tie.
The Cryptography test in Sandra sees both the kits as tied a 9.92GB/s and we suspect the tighter timings on the Crucial Kit made up for the slower speed.
The Sandra Memory Bandwidt test again shows about a 2GB/s difference in the kits with the Crucial Ballistix kit trailing the Kingston kit.
Here in the Memory Latency test we see the Kingston Fury kit at 19.8ns while the Crucial Ballistix Sport kit comes in at 22.2MB/s or 2/4ns slower.
