About AIDA64 Engineer

AIDA64 Engineer has a hardware detection engine unrivaled in its class. It provides detailed information about installed software and offers diagnostic functions and support for overclocking. As it is monitoring sensors in real time, it can gather accurate voltage, temperature and fan speed readings, while its diagnostic functions help detect and prevent hardware issues. It also offers a couple of benchmarks for measuring the performance of individual hardware components or the whole system. It is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows editions, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.

Our first set of benchmark results here are obtained using AIDA64 CPU tests. Version 6.10.5200 (The latest release at press time; which can be downloaded from our Downloads page) was used in this review. It is interesting to see how the numbers compared against some older and newer sets of RAM, because we have a varying combination of speed and latencies. As for the performance, you can see they were mostly close to each other. In each of these tests, the Ballistix Elite DDR4-4000 2x8GB trades back and forth with all the other memory kits. In some tests like CPU Photoworxx, it comes out on top, while other tests like ZLib produce lower scores. Even so, most of the results were within a percentage or two points between each other, with the exception of Photoworxx, which differed by almost nine percent. Overall, all of the results were similar across the graphs, which is not too surprising. As for the varying frequencies for the Ballistix Elite, you can see running at a slower frequency and lower latency provided general improvements across the board. For the most part, this is a trend that will continue, as you will see in the rest of our results.
