FinalWire today released a new version of its streamlined diagnostic and benchmarking tool for home users, AIDA64 version 1.70. AIDA64 is the successor to Everest, the once popular utility that was discontinued in late 2010 and picked up by FinalWire, which would explain why the two programs look and function so similar. AIDA64 v1.70 adds a handful of new features and improvements, including support for the latest LGA1155 B3 stepping motherboards.
Other noteable upgrades include:
Also included in this spring update is a new 64-bit multi-threaded HD video encoding benchmark based on Google's VP8 (WebM) video codec, as well as enhanced support for AMD and JMicron RAID controllers.
In this case, you have to pay to play, and pricing for AIDA64 starts at $40 for the Extreme Edition. There's also a Business Edition that runs $80, and an Extreme Edition Engineer License that costs $150. Trial versions are available here .
