HyperPi is a front end for SuperPi that allows for multiple concurrent instances of SuperPi to be run on each core recognized by the system. It is very dependent on CPU to memory to HDD speed. The faster these components, the faster it is able to figure out the number Pi to the selected length.
For our testing, we use the 32M run. This means that each of the four physical and four logical cores for the i7 and the four physical cores of the i5, are trying to calculate the number Pi out to 32 million decimal places. Each "run" is a comparative to ensure accuracy, and any stability or performance issues in the loop mentioned above will cause errors in calculation.

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.
Out of the box the performance is really strong. You can see that when it comes to Hyper Pi, the stock numbers on the Force offering are ahead of our other Z87 boards, which is fantastic. Of course, overclocking helps take the lead even further against our stock numbers.
AIDA64 CPU numbers seem to be fairly in line with our other offerings here, but ahead of the ASRock Z87 OC FORMULA, which sits a little further back when compared to our other Z87 offerings.
