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.

Starting to look at USB performance we can see that USB 2.0 performance isn't bad and lines up with the other boards that don't use any kind of "boost" technology.

 

As for USB 3.0 performance we can see it sits a little behind the other setups in the "Begin" and "Middle" tests. Fortunately it's nothing major with just a couple of MB/s being lost, none the less it's noteworthy.
