 Who/What is Sandra?

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, PCI-X, PCIe (PCI Express), database, USB, USB2, 1394/Firewire, etc.

Native ports for all major operating systems are available:

  • Windows XP, Vista, 7; Server 2003/R2, 2008 (x86)
  • Windows XP, Vista, 7; Server 2003/R2, 2008/R2 (x64)

All major technologies are supported and taken advantage of:

  • SMP - Multi-Processor
  • MC - Multi-Core
  • SMT/HT - Hyper-Threading
  • MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE 4.1, SSE 4.2, AVX, FMA - Multi-Media instructions
  • GPGPU, DirectX, OpenGL - Graphics
  • NUMA - Non-Uniform Memory Access
  • AMD64/EM64T/x64 - 64-bit extensions to x86

Legal Stuff: Sandra is an acronym and has no connection whatsoever express or implied with anything or anyone, living or deceased in the past, present or future. Any resemblance is purely coincidental.
