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.

Looking at USB performance, we can see that USB 3.0 performance is pretty standard. USB 2.0 performance on the other hand is extremely strong. GIGABYTE are using a Fresco controller on the USB 3.0 ports and while USB 3.0 performance doesn't hold any surprises, the Fresco chip seems to handle USB 2.0 extremely well.
