HD Tune measures disk performance to make comparisons between drives or disk controllers.
AIDA64 Extreme Edition is a software utility designed to be used for hardware diagnosis and benchmarking. I will be using the CPU Queen test that looks for the solution for the "Queens" problem on a 10x10 chessboard. This tests the branch-prediction capabilities of the processor. The FPU Mandel test measures double precision floating point performance through computation of several frames of the "Mandelbrot" fractal.
Again the trend continues with the Z77 Extreme 4 keeping up with but not exceeding the performance of the comparison board.
