Sandra benchmarking fixed
Subjective "things" tend to favor those with the most inve$tment in them.
Oh nice. What the heck will I use now???
i dunno. but it sure won't be sisoft sandra.
The inherent nature of both code, compiler, linker, and run-time optimizations will always force a single executable benchmark to favor a particular platform. It is an accepted fact of the benchtesting process.
However, I would hope that SANDRA developers are not intentionally favoring one platform over another.
Other alternatives are available here:
Hey, if Sisoft added code that is optimized for the P4 then good for them. It will give a true comparison between T-bird and the P4. That is the only way a P4 can be tested. If they added code because of some bias butthead then I'd pissed! The article says that in version 8.21 the AMD code was reverted back in. The P4 code is still there. Either way, that article makes Intel sound like a whiner. 'Boohoo, our processors suck, lets throw some cash around to make people think they're better then they actually are.'
Maybe I'm going about it the wrong way. IMHO

I hate that a company would get another company to lie for them so they can get more sales and influence my purchases. Totally uncool, and unethical.
Yet another companie that is pissing me off... if anybody wants a copy of Sandra 2K e-mail me.
