- Everest Ultimate Edition
EVEREST Ultimate Edition is a leading system diagnostics and benchmarking solution for enthusiasts PC users, based on the 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. Furthermore, complete software, operating system and security information makes EVEREST Ultimate Edition a comprehensive system diagnostics tool that offers a total of 100 pages of information about your PC. The software has build-in several tests for memory and CPU/FPU.
The triple-channel DDR3 memory used on the Core i7/X58 platform seems to make the difference here, especially at the memory tests. Compared to the Intel C2D/C2Q series as well as the AMD 9950 BE CPU, the i7-920 seems to be 25-30% faster in the memory tests.
The performance we got in the CPU and FPU tests is also much better than you can get from any previous AMD/Intel platform.
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility. It should provide most of the information (including undocumented) you need to know about your hardware, software and other devices whether hardware or software. It works along the lines of other Windows utilities, however it tries to go beyond them and show you more of what's really going on. Giving the user the ability to draw comparisons at both a high and low-level. You can get information about the CPU, chipset, video adapter, ports, printers, sound card, memory, network, Windows internals, AGP, PCI, PCIe, ODBC Connections, USB2, 1394/Firewire, etc. Sisoft Sandra offers a variety of tests for Memory and CPU.
The Sisoft Sandra tests confirmed that the Intel i7-920 processor is much faster than any other processor we have tested in past.
We should apologize here for some strange results that appear in the graphs in some tests. The specific test results are coming from our database and were conducted with a previous version of the Sisoft Sandra software.
