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 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

Up next are the FPU results using AIDA64 Engineer. You can download a trial version of the program right from APH Networks, as we are an official mirror for FinalWire. Anyway, let us talk about the results. Once again, we are seeing considerable gains from the overclocked Intel Core i5-6600K processor; pretty much on the same level as our CPU tests on the previous page. As I have mentioned earlier, the Intel Core i5-6600K operates at 3.5GHz from the factory, but thanks to our beefy Noctua NH-U14S cooler with two fans, it does not have any issues operating in Turbo Boost frequency for extended periods of time. This also means it is overclocking friendly. Simply put, taking it to 4.7GHz on the Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD5 is no small change in frequency. This provided a gain of 18%, 31%, 31%, and 31%, respectively, in the four AIDA64 FPU results, as listed above.
