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.

AIDA64 numbers really line up with the best of the setups with not too much separating them. Looking at HD Tune Pro performance, though, you can see across the board we're looking strong in the Maximum and Average numbers. The minimum does sit in the middle of the pack, though.
