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.

At first, I was quite astonished by the results from this set of tests. To be honest, I did not expect the Intel Atom D525 to perform so much better than the AMD eOntario T56N. However, after double checking the benchmarks, these results were indeed correct. The only part the eOntario was able to beat the Atom was in the AES test, but the rest of the tests curved towards the Atom's favor by quite a big margin. After thinking about it some more, I recalled that the Intel Atom D525 had Hyper-Threading, and since AIDA64's CPU tests are multithreaded, the Intel Atom D525 had a clear advantage. From these results, we can project that for most multithreaded tests, the Intel Atom will be able to beat the eOntario processor. Please be wary that just looking at the numbers as they do not always tell the full story. In later tests, we will see that the eOntario CPU is more powerful than the Atom in non-multithreaded applications.
