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.
CPU read and write performance under AIDA64 is really strong for the new 3570k. You can see that in the L1 department it really only falls behind the much more expensive i7 3960X. Looking at L2 and L3 numbers we can see it manages to come out slightly ahead in some scenarios as well.
Memory performance isn't too shocking and you can see Z68 / Z77 performance is pretty tight. It's also better than the Quad Channel numbers we get out of the X79 platform which doesn't come as a shock to us. If you're interested in reading more about it I'd recommend you check out an article we did called Intel X79 Quad Channel and Z68 Dual Channel Memory Performance Analysis.
