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 10 and Windows Server 2016.

As with all our removable storage reviews, I would just like to make it clear from the start we have a large mix flash drives of different performance grades on the list, so when comparing results, be sure to do so contextually. AIDA64 results provide interesting insight to the performance of the SanDisk Ultra Fit 256GB as an uber tiny USB flash drive. Delivering up to 123.2MB/s sequential read in the beginning of the drive, around 45MB/s thereafter, 42.1MB/s random read, and 74.2MB/s buffered read, it was pretty slow by modern standards, but it is also one of the physically smallest drive on the list other than the first generation Ultra Fit 128GB. Its 3.98ms random access time was also higher than all other flash devices. So far, for 256GB of USB 3.1 storage, the Ultra Fit was certainly no speed demon.
