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 2.0 performance is strong thanks to the XFast technology that ASRock implement.

 

As for USB 3.0 performance which is finally running natively through the Intel chipset, we can see overall performance is similar to other controllers we've looked at in the past.
