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.
It's so funny to see the kind of performance difference between our single Green drive and our RAID 0 SSD setup that's on offer from the Commander PC. With the CPU performance being quite similar when it comes to the Synthetic testing side of things, the main difference between our two systems is the snappiness that's offered just going around Windows. You just don't get that instant access on a mechanical drive.
Memory performance is good, but of course being only a 1600MHz one verse the 2133MHz one seen in our Commander PC, it does indeed lag behind the more expensive setup. None the less, its performance is still strong.
