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.

We can see that on our Corsair SATA III drive we've got great performance. Looking at the onboard 20GB SSD as well, we can see even though it's only SATA II, the performance is really strong with some great random performance. It seemed a little high, but testing over and over and over again netted results with in just a few MB/s.

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

Looking at HD Tune Pro, we can also see the very strong performance that is seen under AIDA64. We can also see that compared to our older SATA II drive, the onboard SLC drive performs exceptionally well again.
