Sandra Lite 2007.SP1 (2007.6.10.99)
We used the Memory Bandwidth Benchmark module from Sandra to measure the maximum transfer rate that the memory was able to achieve. The result published is an arithmetic average from the Buffered Integer Stream and Buffered Float Stream results.
You can check the results on the graph below.
|Sempron 3000+ (1.8 GHz)||2.693 MB/s|
|Celeron D 331 (2.66 GHz)||2.479 MB/s||8.63%|
Both processors benchmarked access memory in single channel. On Celeron D it’s possible to use the dual channel feature since the motherboard chipset supports that feature. The motherboard used in this review didn’t have that feature.
At this benchmark, AMD processor’s memory transfer rate was 8.63% superior to the transfer rate achieved by Intel Celeron D.
