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, it has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must-have application for storage device testing.

AIDA 64 numbers see strong SSD performance out of the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper Z87. You can see we manage to be slightly ahead of the average numbers in all areas.

 

HD Tune Pro numbers also look pretty good, with solid average and maximum numbers being seen. The minimum number sits in that 190 MB/s range like a couple of our other Z87 boards.
