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.






AIDA64 performance sees both the 2600k and 3770k are again very close to each other with L3 performance looking stronger on the new i7 3770k. Overclocked we again see a nice boost in performance, but due to that 2600k just being a stronger overclocking CPU, it comes out ahead here.




Looking at memory performance under AIDA64 we can see the same trends as we've seen all along for the most part. We've got performance that lines up with the 2600k at stock and we're a little behind when overclocked due to the lower overclock. Compared to the Sandy Bridge quad channel benchmarks, though, we see that the dual channel benchmarks are stronger.
