Replacing Everest in our labs is AIDA64. This new testing suite is from the core development team from Lavalys and continues that tradition. The guys have thrown in better support for multithreaded CPUs as well as full 64 bit support. We use this to test memory and HDDs for now, but may find ourselves opening this up to other areas of the motherboard.




Across the board you can see that performance on the new X79 platform isn't as strong when it comes to comparing the different setups under AIDA64. You can actually see that the difference between Dual Channel and Quad Channel on the platform just isn't shown with across the board performance being near identical.


Overclocking does indeed yield some performance increase, but you can see that we continue to struggle against the older Z68 platform. It seems clear that AIDA64 just isn't showing the performance difference between Dual Channel and Quad Channel at the moment.
