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.

As always, our first set of benchmark results presented on the table are data obtained using AIDA64 CPU tests, formerly known as EVEREST. Version 2.70 (The latest release at press time; which can be downloaded from our Downloads page) results cannot be compared with those obtained using 2.60 and earlier, and since we are testing on a completely new platform anyway, might as well go with the latest. It is quite interesting how the products compare, because the slowest RAM has the highest capacity at 16GB, the middle set having the highest latencies, and the fastest kit is only 8GB, as with the guy in the middle. The results are really a toss-up between the three. The Kingston HyperX Predator took the lead in Queen and AES, while the G.Skill TridentX performed the best in Zlib. The Patriot Intel Extreme Masters claimed PhotoWorxx. Although the DDR3-2133 and DDR3-2400 kits were all tied up in Hash, the DDR3-1866 set was only one point behind.
