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.

AIDA64's synthetic memory tests are the one next up to produce results for our review today. In pretty much all the benchmarks, we can see that higher memory bandwidth RAM kits are generally favored -- whether it is the Copy, Write, or Read results. This is probably the most unsurprising thing ever, consider the name of this benchmark does, in fact, reflect what is tested. Operating at DDR3-1600, the Patriot Viper SODIMM PC3-12800 2x8GB arrived in near the top of the pack; coming in extremely close to the G.Skill Ripjaws F3-1600C9D-16GRSL 2x8GB. This means it is a little bit behind Kingston's HyperX DDR3-1600 2x4GB, probably because it is a bit harder on the memory controller when capacity is increased, contributing to a slightly reduced score. It is also marginally behind the Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600 16GB, probably due to design differences between manufacturers; despite having the same latency specifications.
