EVEREST Ultimate Edition is an industry leading system diagnostics
and benchmarking solution for enthusiasts PC users, based on the
award-winning EVEREST Technology. During system optimizations and
tweaking it provides essential system and overclock information,
advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities to check the
effects of the applied settings. CPU, FPU and memory benchmarks are
available to measure the actual system performance and compare it to
previous states or other systems. We use EVEREST because it does memory
read and write speed, memory latency measurement to stress the memory
and cache subsystem, including references list to compare actual
performance with other systems.
Everest shows us mixed results, as the DFI does poorly on the read testing, but falls right in line with the write bandwidth testing. Note: we have no Everest results for the Foxconn and ECS PN1 boards.
