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.

When it comes to SATA III SSD Performance you can see the numbers seem to lag a little behind the competition. We're slightly down across the board.

 

Originally we were even lower, but we noticed that was because we had accidently plugged our drive into the SATA II ports, due to the lack of color coding on the SATA ports.
