AIDA64, the successor to the once-popular Everest benchmarking suite and system utility, has been upgraded to version 1.50 to support Intel's upcoming Sandy Bridge architecture, FinalWire announced.

The latest update adds a handful of other new features and improvements, such as AVX-optimized 64-bit fractal and security benchmarks, a 64-bit multi-threaded VP8 video encoding benchmark, an updated GPU database that now includes AMD's Radeon HD 6900 series and Nvidia's GeForce GTX 570 videocard, enhanced support for Nvidia RAID controllers, and a few other odds and ends.

Free 30-day trials are available for both AIDA64 Extreme Edition ($40) and Business Edition ($80).
