New: SiSoftware Sandra 2015!
News and Releases
Here are the very latest news from SiSoftware:
2016 RTM SiSoftware Sandra 2016 Released: London, UK, 16th November 2014 - Brand-new benchmarks, OpenGL CS, RTM Windows 10 and future Server 2016 support.

With the public release of Windows 10 RTM we have transitioned to the brand-new tools in order to use the very latest technologies, including future DirectX 12 (both shader and compute).

We have expanded our portfolio with brand-new CPU and GPGPU Image Processing benchmarks (testing common filters) that support all modern instruction sets (FMA, AVX, SSE2) as well as GPGPU interfaces (CUDA, OpenCL, DirectX 10/11 ComputeShader). Since Compute is now supported in the very latest versions of OpenGL (4.3+) we have also ported the GPGPU benchmarks to this new interface. more...

OpenGL Compute Shader GPGPU SiSoftware OpenGL Compute Shader Support Released: London, UK, 16th November 2015 - SiSoftware releases its suite of OpenGL Compute Shader GPGPU benchmarks as part of SiSoftware Sandra 2016.

Compute is a new programmable shader stage introduced with OpenGL 4.3 that expands it beyond graphics programming; while there are established GPGPU interfaces (CUDA, OpenCL) that interop with OpenGL, we believe the native support will accelerate the use of compute in programs/apps on platforms that use OpenGL as their standard graphics interface - thus we have ported all our GPGPUs benchmarks to OpenGL Compute. more...

DirectX Compute Shader GPGPU SiSoftware DirectX Compute Shader Support Released: London, UK, 4th January 2010 - SiSoftware releases its suite of DirectX 11 Compute Shader GPGPU benchmarks as part of SiSoftware Sandra 2010.

Compute Shader/DirectCompute is a new programmable shader stage introduced with DirectX 11 that expands Direct3D beyond graphics programming. We believe Compute Shader/DirectCompute will become "the standard" for programming parallel workloads in Windows, thus we have ported all our GPGPUs benchmarks to DirectX 11 Compute Shader/DirectCompute. more...
