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.

Since our storage review benchmark results are presented in alphabetical order, first up on the list are results from one of our favorite benchmarking programs, AIDA64 Engineer. Just to note, AIDA64 Engineer is a full synthetic benchmark. Unlike full synthetic motor oil, this usually does not always carry a good connotation. While it is not a representation of real life performance -- such as how fast you can copy movies to your drive -- it does provide valuable insight into performance variation between drives from different manufacturers. As you can see in our graphs above, the latest 7,200 RPM BarraCuda Pro ST12000DM0007 12TB delivered top notch performance in the linear read segment; posting some of the fastest rates on the board. It clocked in at 255.8MB/s in the beginning of the drive, 210.4MB/s in the middle, and finishing with 114.6MB/s in the end. This is faster than its 10TB variant as well as the Seagate IronWolf Pro 12TB, although it came in marginally behind the IronWolf 12TB. Its 13.90ms random access time was a little higher than the IronWolf Pro 12TB and a little lower than the IronWolf 12TB; meaning it is still no match for the WD Black's 11.45ms and Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD V.5's 11.58ms.
