Intel Core i9-12900KS Review
Since its early days as Everest, AIDA64 has provided an excellent way to benchmark your system without requiring you to take a week off work whilst the tests run. From the memory bandwidth benchmarks which test your throughput, to the CPU benchmarks which vary in scope to test everything from raw calculation – CPU Queen – through compression algorithms – zLib – and the all important encryption – AES256. In the memory latency graphs the lower scores are usually taken with DDR4, which trades outright speed for lower timings. It's a delicate balance.
