Today FinalWire released an intermediate update to the PC editions of its award-winning system information software. AIDA64 v5.75 provides support for the latest hardware, including the recently announced nVIDIA Pascal and AMD Polaris graphics processors. The update also comes with benchmarks optimized for the newest Intel processors.
AVX and FMA accelerated FP32 and FP64 ray tracing benchmarks
A brand new pair of multi-threaded ray tracing benchmarks, utilizing AVX, AVX2, FMA, FMA4 and SSE optimizations. As part of the GPGPU Benchmark Suite, the existing IOPS CPU benchmarks have been further optimized for AMD Bulldozer family processors. For legacy processors all benchmarks and the AIDA64 System Stability Test are available in 32-bit version as well.
RGB LED keyboard and mouse support
The existing AIDA64 RGB LED module has been extended to cover Corsair Strafe, Logitech G13, Logitech G19, Logitech G19s RGB LED keyboards; and Corsair, Logitech, Razer RGB LED mice. CPU and memory utilization, network traffic, temperatures, voltages, fan speeds, and power draw measurements can now all be monitored on RGB devices, using various visual representations.
Hardware monitor improvements
The highly customizable Logitech Arx and RemoteSensor LCD modules have been enhanced with multiple pages support. Support for AquaStream Ultimate and NZXT GRID+ V2 sensor devices, and Corsair AXi power supply units. Improved support for Corsair Link, Koolance and T-Balancer sensor devices.
Next-generation Intel processors and chipsets support
AVX2 and FMA optimized 64-bit benchmarks for 6th Generation Intel Core Skylake and for the upcoming Intel Kaby Lake desktop, notebook, tablet, and workstation processors. Chipset information for Intel 10-Series Sunrise Point and Sunrise Point-LP south bridges, and for the integrated memory controller of Intel Skylake and Kaby Lake processors. AIDA64 benchmarks and System Stability Test utilize Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2), Fused Multiply-Add (FMA) instructions, and AES-NI hardware acceleration of the new Intel processors. Improved support for Intel Kaby Lake CPUs.
AIDA64 is released on a new mobile platform: it is now available for Sailfish OS, a mobile operating system developed by Jolla on the basis of the former MeeGo system. This version includes all the features found in the AIDA64 Android app, while it also provides support for active cover, a Sailfish-specific element which allows users to display hardware monitoring information in real time in a widget-like window. AIDA64 for Sailfish can be downloaded for free from the Jolla Store on Sailfish OS based devices.
Besides, the AIDA64 Android app has also been updated recently. Downloaded more than 1.3 million times to date, the application now provides full support for Vulkan and Android N.
Support for the latest hardware technologies
Multi-threaded OpenCL GPGPU benchmarks, graphics processor, OpenGL and GPGPU details, temperature and cooling fan monitoring for the latest GPUs: nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070, GeForce GTX 1080, Tesla P100. Preliminary support for AMD Radeon RX 470 and Radeon RX 480. Vulkan graphics accelerator diagnostics for AMD, Intel and nVIDIA graphics accelerators. Improved support for Kingston SSDNow UV400 SSDs. Support for ACPI 6.1. Improved support for AMD Zen Summit Ridge CPU.
