Latest version of award-winning utility includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features
London, UK, May 7th 2006 - SiSoftware has announced the availability of SiSoftware Sandra 2007, the latest version of its award-winning utility which includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, Pocket PC1, Smartphone1, small office/home office (SOHO) networks and enterprise networks.
In this version, the SiSoftware Sandra user interface has been re-written to make it even easier for users to locate the tools and modules they need. This is the biggest visual interface change to the software in the last decade. Following feedback, the help file has been updated and is now fully HTML based, providing a familiar, clear, interface to the user.
SiSoftware continues to strive towards understanding its user base better from day-to-day, release-to-release. We have recognised the two distinct markets of home enthusiast and business IT professionals. In the last version (Sandra 2005), we fully decoupled the client from the underlying technology engine in order to best aid networks. We continue to see the clear difference in the markets between home and business users, and are committed to supporting both. With this version, we now offer a home (Workgroup) version and a business (Domain) version. This has allowed us to bring down the cost for home users!
With each release, we add new support and compatibility for the latest hardware, architectures and operating systems and this is no exception. We have also taken the opportunity to add 4 new benchmarks, 2 new modules, and updated many more.
As new technology comes out, the SiSoftware team works with hardware and software manufacturers to best understand their new technologies before it is generally available. In our continued commitment to extend platform support, we have made a single multi-platform (Win32 x86, Win64 x64, WinCE ARM) multi-language installer.
3 platform support (Win32 x86, Win64 x64, WinCE ARM) in a single installer
