Sandra Lite 2017 SP4 (24.61)
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.
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, and so on.
Reporting of Operating System (Windows) speculation control settings for the recently discovered vulnerabilities:
BTI (Branch Target Injection) aka ‘Spectre’.
RDCL (Rogue Data Cache Load) aka ‘Meltdown’.
Reporting of latest CPU microcode update availability:
Hardware mitigation for BTI/’Spectre’.
Reporting of CPU features for branch control:
Hardware enumeration and control for speculation and predictors -
Indirect branch restricted speculation (IBRS) and Indirect branch predictor barrier (IBPB).
Single thread indirect branch predictors (STIBP).
Architecture Capabilities (affected by IB or not).
Reporting of CPU support for Context ID / Indirect CID:
Hardware acceleration for context switching thus mitigating performance loss when KVA (Kernel’s Virtual Address) Shadowing is enabled.
