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.

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 under AIDA64 and HD Tune Pro, we can see very strong SATA III SSD performance out of the Extreme4 here today. Ever since we made the move to SATA III there's been a lot more fluctuation between our results unlike the SATA II drive we used to use; it was pretty consistent which you can see at the top of the graphs.
