AIDA64 Benchmark Results

AIDA64 is a full 64-bit benchmark and test suite utilizing MMX, 3DNow! and SSE instruction set extensions, and will scale up to 32 processor cores. An enhanced 64-bit System Stability Test module is also available to stress the whole system to its limits. For legacy processors all benchmarks and the System Stability Test are available in 32-bit versions as well. Additionally, AIDA64 adds new hardware to its database, including 300 solid-state drives. On top of the usual ATA auto-detect information the new SSD database enables AIDA64 to display flash memory type, controller model, physical dimensions, and data transfer performance data. AIDA64 v1.00 also implements SSD-specific SMART disk health information for Indilinx, Intel, JMicron, Samsung, and SandForce controllers.

All of the benchmarks used in this test- Queen, PhotoWorxx, ZLib, and hash- rely on basic x86 instructions, and consume very little system memory while also being aware of Hyper-Threading, multi-processors, and multi-core processors. Of all the tests in this review, AIDA64 is the one that best isolates the processor’s performance from the rest of the system. While this is useful in that it more directly compares processor performance, readers should remember that virtually no “real world” programs will mirror these results.

Since AIDA64 is a “pure CPU” test, I’ve included results from a stock-clocked Intel Core i7-4770K “Haswell” CPU on an MSI MPower Z78 motherboard for comparison.

The PhotoWorxx test is much more dependent on memory bandwidth than CPU horsepower, and there’s very little difference between the stock and overclocked scores since the memory is running at the same speed in all cases. Note that the Lenovo Erazer X700 system, with its DDR3-1600 memory running relatively loose timings of 11-11-11-28, still turns in high Photoworxx scores than the Haswell system, which was running DDR3-1600 9-9-9-24. This is because the X79-based Erazer was running triple-channel memory with its three 4GB sticks.lenovo_erazer_x700_aida64

The Haswell-based 4770K is noticeably faster in the Hash test, besting the Core i7-3820K at all but its top clock speed. In ZLIB, it’s faster than the stock 3820, but loses to both overclocks.

    Reminds me of my 1st computer. A Dell of some sort. Came with the original version of Windows XP Home Edition. I kept that lemon just long enough to learn how to build a real computer, then I gave it away.
    As in free. Non-gratis. And never, ever, mention to anyone I gave it to you, or ever owned it kind of a deal.
    At 1500 bucks less, this Lenovo would make a good stocking stuffer for a 3 year old you didn’t especially like. Like that red headed, left handed 3rd cousin everybody worries about.
    But, I’m being kind.
    Take the $1699 this thing costs, go to your favorite e-tailer and piece together whatever your money can buy, then build it. Many, many sites have builders guides to show you how. It’s way simple, educational and rewarding.
    You’ll be ecstatic that you did.
