As the sisoft sandra rankings are currently a mess, we need to undertake some actions. Results from sisoft sandra 2005 and 2007 differ greatly and 2005 does not run on every platform any more.
What should we do?
- remove sandra from the hwbot suite
- allow sandra 2005 & 2007, but do not grant hwboints for benchmark scores
- allow sandra 2007, remove sandra 2005 scores
- allow sandra 2007, remove sandra 2005 scores, but do not grant hwboints for benchmark scores
We are tempted to enforce the last option. Only allow 2007, but do not grant any points. Why? Because benchmarks results from sisoft sandra apps differ from version to version, and it’s very hard for the hwbot crew to establish which sisoft sandra version is used.
Please let us know your suggestion in the forum topic.
