For people wishing to perform stress testing on a PC, Sandra Lite is definitely an option when it comes to gathering a slew of information about a system's hardware setup.
Sandra Lite is a complex utility which tests a number of components on a PC like the system memory (RAM) and processor (CPU). Due to its complex nature, Sandra Lite might be difficult to navigate at first.
With all of that said, the user interface is clean and tidy. Items are organized into tabs from Home, Tools, Benchmarks, Hardware, Software, Support and Favorites. All of these are self-explanatory; different sections of Sandra Lite can have new modules added to them too.
The interesting part about this hardware diagnostics tool are the benchmarks. A variety of different CPU tests are provided such as Processor Arithmetic, Processor Multi-Media, Processor Cryptography, Processor Financial Analysis and some others.
Under Sandra's Hardware tab, information about connected devices and installed components are displayed under their respective modules.
Any task that you run frequently can be bookmarked and added to Sandra Lite's Favorites tab for quick and easy future access.
All in all, Sandra Lite is a formidable hardware diagnostics and system information tool which provides a slew of different tools and information modules for advanced users. SANDRA stands for System Analyzer Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant.
