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 11 and Windows Server 2022.

Alphabetically, the first benchmark is AIDA64 Engineer. Version 6.70.6000, the latest release at press time, can be downloaded from our Downloads page. This is a fully synthetic benchmark, which means it may not necessarily represent real-life performance. However, it still provides valuable insight as we can compare the performance between various drives and their controllers. From the four graphs above, you can see the Lexar SL660 BLAZE 1TB provided a dominant showing with the results. It scored notably higher than other USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 drives, including the Western Digital Black P50 and ADATA Elite SE880. In the linear read tests, the SL660 BLAZE maintained a consistent 1840MB/s here, with a notable delta over the other two primary competitors. The tested latency was also quite low with an average of 0.05ms. The other results also show favorable numbers for the SL660 BLAZE, which is great to see.
