FinalWire has announced today the immediate availability of AIDA64 Extreme Edition 2.85 software. We of course use this software in many of our reviews here at ThinkComputers. The latest AIDA64 update implements full support for the upcoming AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series graphics accelerators, adds AVX-optimized 64-bit benchmarks for AMD A-Series “Richland” APU, and supports the latest GeForce and Tesla GPUs by nVIDIA.
Valve has finally expanded beyond games on it’s extremely popular cloud gaming service Steam. Just launched is the new software section. To start there are only six titles: ArtRage Studio Pro, CameraBag 2, GameMaker: Studio, 3D-Coat, 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark 11. While only having six titles does not seem like a lot it is a step in the right direction. In a press release Valve stated, “Many of the launch titles will take advantage of popular Steamworks features, such as easy installation, automatic updating, and the ability to save your work to your personal Steam Cloud space so your files may travel with you.”

For most of us, monitoring and tweaking our systems is one of the most important part of being a PC enthusiast. Whether you are an overclocker, gamer, or just want the most efficient system you can get, you need to see what is going on inside your case. Temps, voltages, clock rates, fan speeds, memory timings, flow rates on water systems, S.M.A.R.T. data from hard drives, all are relevant information that most of us like to know at one time or another, some of us want to know these things at all times.
