Everest Ultimate Edition 2006

Everest, formerly known to the world as AIDA32, has gone commercial and taken their memory benchmark with them.  There tests are similar to SiSoft’s and ScienceMark’s in that they stress the system via synthetic means to find the highest possible speeds.  Here we have done both Read and Write speed tests as well as the copy memory test.

The memory performance on the three motherboards here shows a slight advantage to the Intel 975X chipset in the form of the Asus P5W DH.  The two P965 motherboards show very similar memory performance though the Gigabyte DS3 motherboard has the edge.
