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.

As our SSD review benchmark results are presented in alphabetical order, first up on the list is AIDA64 Engineer. AIDA64 Engineer is a fully synthetic benchmark. This means it is not necessarily a direct representation of real-life performance, such as how fast applications start or how fast it takes to start up your operating system. However, it does provide valuable insight into performance between different drives and different controllers. From the graphs above, the Crucial P2 500GB performed well. In the linear read test, the P2 500GB was the fifth fastest drive overall, which is pretty good considering it is faster than some more expensive drives. Continuing to the random read and buffered read tests, the Crucial P2 ranked fifth and fourth, respectively, in its results. The tested random-access time was 0.03ms, which is not necessarily the lowest, but still pretty fast. The rest of the comparison results against all the other drives can be seen in our graphs above. While these test results are quite favorable, these are still synthetic tests, so let us continue on.
