.NET1 support added: SiSoftware Sandra evolves
London, UK, September 7, 2007 - SiSoftware is pleased to announce .NET1 support in SiSoftware Sandra XII (2008), its latest version of its award-winning utility which includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, phones, PDAs and networks. The new benchmarks allow users to compare and contrast the performance of native, .NET and Java for arithmetic, multi-media and memory operations.
In addition to the 4 architectures (x86, x64/AMD64/EM64T, IA64/Itanium2, ARM) and the 3 platforms (Windows, Windows CE3, Windows Mobile) supported natively, .NET support means the ability to support additional platforms (Linux, OSX) for which a .NET CLR is available without recompilation.
With the launch of .NET Framework 3.0 the platform for developing the next generation applications for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 has become .NET. For the very first time, applications that want to use the latest technologies (Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation) have to use .NET, there are no native equivalents. This trend is set to continue, paving the way for a future Windows operating system where only .NET applications are allowed to run.
The ability of a computer system to run .NET applications is fast becoming more important than its ability to run native applications and has to be included to provide a complete performance analysis of such computer system.
SiSoftware is commited in releasing a complete .NET version of SiSoftware Sandra later on that can be used on any desktop architecture and platform with compatible .NET Framework 3.0 or later available.
