Everest Ultimate Edition
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.
I was just a little surprised to see the huge difference in performance that we see here in the Everest Read scores. The 965P DQ6 scored just about 7% lower than the next closest board. We repeated the test many times and continually ended up with the same results.
The write results were totally in line with the other scores we had seen in our testing of other boards.
