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 4.30 (The latest release at press time; which can be downloaded from our Downloads page) results is perfectly comparable against numbers as old as 3.20. Generally speaking, RAM with higher capacity and speed performs better in this test. We have noticed a considerable advantage for our DDR3-1600 16GB kits in this benchmark set; especially in the last result. As you can see in our charts above, the Patriot Viper SODIMM PC3-12800 2x8GB stayed within expected range the entire time. It took home one win by a point, and tied for the best in another. As always to note in a RAM review, the difference between the top and the bottom is not significant at all.
