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.




SSD performance is strong on the new G1.Assassin 2. We do see that the minimum sits a little lower. During our runs we saw that it would start out a little slower; overall the average is very strong, though, especially when compared to some of the other boards we've got here.
