AIDA64 Engineer Edition
“FinalWire Ltd. today announced the immediate availability of AIDA64 Extreme Edition 1.50 software, a streamlined diagnostic and benchmarking tool for home users; and the immediate availability of AIDA64 Business Edition 1.50 software, an essential network management solution for small and medium scale enterprises. The new AIDA64 update implements AVX-optimized benchmarks for the upcoming Intel Sandy Bridge processors, adds a brand new video encoding benchmark, and supports the latest AMD and nVIDIA graphics processors.”
We split AIDA64 into 4 charts as all that data crammed onto one chart is just mind blowing. Here in the AIDA latency test, we got 64.2ns the lowest latency of any tested kit.
The Read benchmark shows an amazing 52742MB/s topping the chart with blazing speed.
The AIDA write test sees our benchmark coming in at 50241MB/s well ahead of the slower tighter timed kits.
The Aida Copy benchmark shows the Vengeance 3733MHz kit almost breaking the 60000MB/s barrier!
“SiSoftware Sandra provides a robust package of diagnostic tools for testing your system and teasing out its problems--or potential headaches.”
The Sandra Cache/Memory Bandwidth test coming in at 257.62GB/s.
With Cryptography becoming more incorporated in computing the Sandra Cryptography test becomes more important. The Cryptography test shows the Corsair kit pushing 15.42MB/s and we find ourselves wondering if this test isn’t more CPU dependant than memory dependent.
The Memory Bandwidth test shows the 3733MHz kit pushing 50.42 Float and 51.37 Integer.
The Latency test shows our Corsair kit hitting 25.4ns ensuring fast responsive operations.
"This form allows you to measure the performance of your computer.The benchmark shows a rating in MIPS (million instructions per second). The rating value is calculated from the measured speed, and it is normalized with results of Intel Core 2 CPU with multi-threading option switched off. So if you have modern CPU from Intel or AMD, rating values in single-thread mode must be close to real CPU frequency. There are two tests, compression with LZMA method and decompression with LZMA method. Once the total passes reach 100, the score is taken.”
7 Zip we will gather more tests and move to charts as memory kits come in but our Corsair kit is showing 19273 KB/s at 22005MIPS (Millions of Instructions Per Second) compressing. Decompressing shows 212298KB/s with 18894MIPS.
Super Pi Modded 1.55
“In August 1995, the calculation of pi up to 4,294,960,000 decimal digits was succeeded by using a supercomputer at the University of Tokyo. The program was written by D.Takahashi in collaboration with Dr.Y.Kanada at the computer center. This record should be the current world record. (Details are shown in the windows help.) This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environments such as Windows NT and Windows 95. In order to calculate 33.55 million digits, it takes within 3 days with a Pentium 90 MHz, 40 MB main memory and 340 MB available storage.”
We ran SuperPi at 1M and 32M and the 1M test shows 8.335 seconds tops score on the chart, the 32M more exhaustive test shows 426.467 seconds again top score. Our Corsair Vengeance kit seems to like the top of the charts.
Benchmark Tests Overview
RealBench features several open source software with the latest CPU extensions, where each would test a different part of the system:
GIMP image editing
This focuses on single-threaded CPU performance and memory performance, therefore CPU clock speed and memory efficiency (timings + frequency) are the keys to a good score. It uses up to SSE4.2 CPU extensions.
HandBrake video compression.
This focuses on multi threaded CPU and cache performance, therefore the more CPU threads, cache and clock speed you have the better the score. It uses up to AVX CPU extensions.
This focuses entirely on OpenCL performance. It will check for GPU accelerated OpenCL first, before defaulting to CPU if it isn’t present. It is also compatible with AMD’s upcoming hUMA between APU and GPU. It scales perfectly across all available resources, so the more OpenCL capable GPUs installed the better the score. OpenCL driver efficiency is also key to this test, with some components performing better than others. The test runs for a fixed period and is calculated on the sustained KSample/sec the system can generate.
This test uses a combination of the above tests to simulate a heavy multitasking scenario that loads the entire system.
Image editing in Real Bench shows our Corsair Kit in at 75.753 seconds taking the lead in this test.
The Heavy Multitasking test in RB shows the Corsair kit at 73.117 seconds looking down and sneering at the lesser speed kits.
The OpenCL test shows our new kit at 1112 KSamples/s topping out the chart again.
