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.

Usually, AIDA64's FPU benchmarks are the least exciting of all when writing a RAM review. This is because the way results are obtained is usually highly dependent on the tested processor; so much to an extent that the outcome is practically irrelevant to the speed or latencies of the installed memory modules. That said, it seems to us our Sandy Bridge Intel Core i5-2520M processor did benefit from the VP8 benchmark when we went from DDR3-1066 to DDR3-1333, although only a small gain is noticed when we went from DDR3-1333 to DDR3-1600. For the rest of the tests, the Patriot Viper SODIMM PC3-12800 2x8GB either came in first place or in last place. How is this possible, you may ask? Well, the scores are incredibly close anyway, chances are you can probably rerun them and get slightly different results after a few iterations anyway.
