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.

Memory performance has really improved on the new platform and we can see that here when comparing to the A8-3850, which even saw improved memory performance. It's unfortunate that this hasn't helped AMD in a lot of other areas.
