Sandra’s array of benchmarks sees the Haswell-E processor taking another set of confident leads.

Instruction sets used in the Haswell microarchitecture are to thank for the eight-core chip’s excellent hashing bandwidth.

Memory bandwidth passes the 50GBps mark thanks to the use of DDR4. With G.Skill’s 3GHz CL15 memory installed, the quad-channel Haswell-E system delivers about 22% higher memory bandwidth than our X79 system and its 2133MHz RAM.
