The new version of AIDA64 (the successor to Everest), Version 1.60 is now available for download! We use AIDA64 in our testing and it is really useful system tool and has quite a few different benchmarks included with it. Read on to see what’s new in this release…
Support for AMD Fusion “Ontario” and “Zacate” APUs
Optimized 64-bit benchmarks for the AMD Fusion family of Accelerated Processing Units codenamed “Ontario” and “Zacate”. Detailed chipset information for AMD A50M “Hudson-M1” Fusion Controller Hub.
Improved support for Intel “Sandy Bridge” processors
AIDA64 CPUID Panel, Cache & Memory Benchmark panel, System Stability Test, and all memory and processor benchmarks are now fully optimized for Intel Core i3/i5/i7 “Sandy Bridge” desktop and mobile processors, and Intel H67 and P67 “Cougar Point” motherboard chipsets. CPU AES data encryption benchmark utilizes AES-NI hardware acceleration on the new Intel processors, including the latest hexacore Intel Core i7-990X “Gulftown” CPU.
AVX-optimized 64-bit benchmarks and System Stability Test
FPU Julia, FPU Mandel and CPU Hash benchmarks utilize Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) of Intel Core i3/i5/i7 “Sandy Bridge” processors. System Stability Test module has also been enhanced to put even more stress on the system using AVX optimizations. Note: To unlock AVX capabilities of the new Intel processors, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is required.
64-bit multi-threaded VP8 video encoding benchmark
A new 64-bit multi-threaded HD video encoding benchmark, based on Google’s VP8 (WebM) video codec. The revamped 64-bit CPU ZLib data compression benchmark is also available to provide better support for both old and brand new hardware configurations. For legacy processors all benchmarks and the System Stability Test are available in 32-bit version as well.
Support for the latest hardware technologies
Graphics processor and GPGPU details, temperature and cooling fan monitoring for the latest GPUs: AMD Radeon HD 6450/6470M/6570/6650M/6670/6750/6770, nVIDIA GeForce GT 525M, nVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Support for PCI Express 3.0 controllers and devices.
Enhanced support for AMD and JMicron RAID controllers
RAID member drives enumeration for AMD RAID controllers. HDD and SSD temperature measurement, and SMART disk health status detection for Intel, JMicron, and nVIDIA RAID controllers.
