Clock for Clock Performance: AIDA64 EE AES, Hash, FPU, GFLOPS, GIOPS, PhotoWorxx, and Memory


AIDA64 Engineer Edition AES and Hash Tests




AIDA64 Engineer Edition FPU Tests





AIDA64 Engineer Edition PhotoWorxx Test




AIDA64 Engineer Edition Memory Bandwidth Test




The AIDA64 memory results are quite telling when you look at generational increases in memory performance, and then when you change over from the DDR3 to DDR4 at the same speed, you get almost the same results. These are memory bandwidth numbers, but not memory latency, so it is only part of the whole image. DDR3 and DDR4 at the same speed should perform about the same, but the latencies of DDR4 are much higher, and that is not reflected in these results. I will save that for another article.
