The new release updates support for the latest CPU, GPU and SSD models, adds a new OpenCL GPGPU benchmark suite and expands its business offering to provide a new dedicated Network Audit tool (users should complete this form to test-drive this new product).
The chief new feature in version 4.0 is a new OpenCL GPGPU Benchmark Suite, offering multi-threaded benchmarks for measuring the performance of modern graphics processors and APUs. The suite supports AMD CrossFireX, AMD DualGraphics and nVIDIA SLI configurations along with mixed configurations, multi-GPU video adapters and OpenCL-capable IGPs.
Updated graphics support comes in the form of optimised 64-bit benchmarks for the new AMD Kaveri and Bald Eagle APUs, as well as support for the latest hardware technologies, such as AMD Radeon R5, R7 and R9 series, plus nVIDIA GeForce GTX 760, 760 Ti OEM, and 780 Ti OEM models, and Quadro K610M/K3100M/K6000.
The new build also offers support for the Razer SwitchBlade Pro’s multi-touch LCD display, allowing users to view temperatures, fan speeds and various other system details. This support has also been extended to two Razer gaming keyboards (Razer DeathStalker Ultimate and Razer SWTOR). Also optimised is support for the Logitech G19 gaming keyboard promising less demands on the CPU when rendering the image on the keyboard’s LCD display.
The update also includes optimised benchmarks for Intel’s Bay Trail SoC (system on a chip) products, while also improving support for two Intel Atom C2000 chips (Avoton and Rangeley) and introducing preliminary support for the Intel Quark X1000 SoC.
AIDA64 Extreme Edition 4.00 and AIDA64 Business Edition 4.00 are both available as function-limited 30-day trials, with prices starting from $39.00 for an AIDA64 Extreme Edition non-commercial license.
