About AIDA64 Extreme Edition

AIDA64 Extreme Edition is a streamlined Windows diagnostic and benchmarking software for home users. AIDA64 Extreme Edition provides a wide range of features to assist in overclocking, hardware error diagnosis, stress testing, and sensor monitoring. It has unique capabilities to assess the performance of the processor, system memory, and disk drives. AIDA64 is compatible with all current 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems, including Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

AIDA64 implements a set of 64-bit benchmarks to measure how fast the computer performs various data processing tasks and mathematical calculations. Memory and cache benchmarks are available to analyze system RAM bandwidth and latency. Processor benchmarks utilize MMX, 3DNow! and SSE instructions, and scale up to 32 processor cores. For legacy processors all benchmarks are available in 32-bit version as well. AIDA64 Disk Benchmark determines the data transfer speed of hard disk drives, solid-state drives, optical drives, and flash memory based devices.

Up next are the FPU results using AIDA64 Extreme Edition; formerly known as EVEREST Ultimate Edition as mentioned on the previous page. You can download a trial version of the program right from APH Networks, as we are an official mirror for FinalWare. Anyways, let's talk about the results. The Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H performed slightly better than the Intel Desktop Board DZ77GA-70K in most tests, with a small but decent margin to spare, just like the previous set of tests. Of course, the difference can be made by a few MHz of processor clocking out of the box, but either way, we like what we are seeing so far.
