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.

Since our SSD review benchmark results are presented in alphabetical order, first up on the list are results from one of our favorite benchmarking programs, AIDA64 Engineer. Just to note, AIDA64 Engineer is a full synthetic benchmark. This means it is not a 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. As you can see in our graphs above, the Gigabyte M.2 PCIe SSD 256GB comes out swinging with good performance. Compared to the other five drives this Gigabyte went up against, it always ended up in fourth place. This is not a terrible result, especially considering how much cheaper it is compared to all of these other drives. Compared to our recently reviewed Toshiba RC100 256GB, the M.2 PCIe SSD generally compared positively with favorable results in practically all of the benchmark numbers here. The tested random access time was 0.03ms, which was tied for the fourth among these drives. The rest of the comparison results against all the other drives can be seen in our graphs above.
