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.

The last set of AIDA64's test are their synthetic memory tests. Traditionally, in pretty much all the benchmarks, higher memory bandwidth RAM kits are generally favored on the Copy, Write, and Read results. Operating at DDR4-4000, the Ballistix Elite DDR4-4000 2x8GB came in faster than the other two kits, which operated at DDR4-3200 and DDR4-3000 kits. As for the latency test, it is no surprise the Ballistix Elite DDR4-4000 came in last, as it operates at the highest CAS latency. Even so, the difference in the latency is not huge. When operating at the DDR4-3600 speed, you can actually see the better results in all categories, despite running at a lower bandwidth. Once again, this just shows how the Infinity Fabric interconnect architecture plays with memory frequencies and latency.
