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.
While we see our USB 3.0 performance line up just as we'd normally expect, looking at USB 2.0 performance we can see our Extreme4 Gen3 motherboard does well thanks to the XFast USB technology that's implemented. For people who deal with USB transfers a lot, it's a great piece of technology; it's a pity that the gains from the USB 3.0 perspective can't really be seen yet, though.
