AIDA64 implements a set of 64-bit benchmarks to measure how fast the computer performs various data processing tasks and mathematical calculations. Multi-threaded memory and cache benchmarks are available to analyze system RAM bandwidth and latency. Benchmark pages of AIDA64 Extreme provide several methods to measure system performance. These benchmarks are synthetic, so their results show only the theoretical maximum performance of the system. The AIDA64 suite has various benchmarks for CPU, FPU, GPU, storage, and memory testing.

Lexar ARES



The 7-zip benchmark shows a rating of MIPS (million instructions per second). The rating value is calculated from the measured speed, and it is normalized with the results of the Intel Core 2 CPU with a multi-threading option switched off. So, if you have a 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 the LZMA method and decompression with the LZMA method. Once the total passes reach 100, the score is taken.

SiSoft Sandra Lite

Sandra Lite is a free version of SiSoft’s Sandra testing suite. Sandra Lite is a synthetic benchmark program that has its own set of system memory-specific benchmarks. Aggregated scores of the Memory bandwidth performance in Gigabytes per second and Memory Transaction Throughput in total throughput per second are measured (higher is better).

ASUS ROG Realbench

ROG Realbench is an open-source program, designed to test your PC as it would run in real-world scenarios. It’s a semi-synthetic testing suite that collects four different programs and can perform controlled runs of each related to image editing (GIMP), video encoding (Handbrake H.264), OpenCL (Luxmark), and Heavy Multitasking (Combination of all three at the same time). Specifically, the test I ran was the image editing benchmark to gauge memory performance.

3DMARK Time Spy

3DMark is a computer benchmarking tool created and developed by Futuremark used to determine the performance of a computer’s 3D graphics rendering and CPU workload processing capabilities. It does this through a series of graphics and physics and or CPU tests.

Software Testing of Lexar Hades DDR4 3600 32GB


The Lexar Hades is compatible with major motherboard brands that support Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB 2.0, MSI Mystic Light, and ASRock Polychrome Sync.  You can control your RGB through the motherboard software or Lexar’s RGB software.

Lexar ARES

The software can be downloaded from Lexar’s website as it is not included with the RAM kit.

Lexar ARES

After installing the software, the Memory modules show up in the Lexar app and are ready to be customized.  There are many pre-set customization to choose from.  And if you want to get even more in-depth, you can customize the color of the individual LEDs and their patterns.
