Ready, Set, BENCHMARK!
The folks over at FinalWire have updated AIDA64 to include compatibility for testing the performance and stability of new hardware today. If you already have the software you can simply update and get the new version, 6.30, and if not it might be worth thinking about.
We use AIDA frequently here for benchmarks, stability and to get proper information on the various hardware we test. If you want to get full details on your motherboard and it’s various sensors, or memory timings this is one of the better tools out there. The software is not free, unlike CPU-Z and GPU-Z, but it also offers a lot more than those and similar free software and is bundled together in a single interface. The included stability test is also handy for overclockers to test their current system settings as well as specific subsystems.
This new version supports a variety of new hardware such as:
- AVX-512 accelerated benchmarks for Intel Tiger Lake and Rocket Lake processors
- AVX accelerated 64-bit benchmarks for Zhaoxin KaiXian KX-6000 CPU
- SSE4 optimized 64-bit benchmarks for Intel Lakefield SoC
- Further optimized SHA3-512 cryptographic hash benchmark
- Improvements for AMD A520 and B550 chipset based motherboards
- SteelSeries Apex 7 TKL and Apex Pro TKL OLED display support
- OpenCL 3.0 support
- NZXT Kraken X53, X63, X73, Z63, Z73 sensor support
- Enhanced support for LGA-1200 motherboards
- Preliminary support for Intel Alder Lake CPU
- GPU details for AMD Radeon Pro W5500
- GPU details for nVIDIA GeForce MX450, GeForce RTX 3000 Series
- Fixed handling of per-core HyperThreading (Intel Comet Lake-S)
There is a free trial available as well, if you would like to try AIDA64 before making the call to buy it or not.
