AIDA64, the benchmarking, system monitoring, and diagnostic software formerly known as Everest, has been updated to version 2.20 by FinalWire with new features and support for current and upcoming processors and GPUs. One of the new features is an OpenCL GPGPU stress test that's been added to the System Stability Test module, which also now includes optimized 64-bit benchmarks for Intel Atom "Cedarview" CPUs and upcoming Ivy Bridge processors.
"According to our evaluations, with the new AIDA64 System Stability Test an outstanding system power draw and heat dissipation can be achieved,” said Tamas Miklos , managing director of FinalWire. "AIDA64 has become a comprehensive test suite that not only measures performance of desktop computers, notebooks and servers, but also helps to reveal overheating and stability issues with a complete set of stress testing and hardware monitoring capabilities."
Other additions include ACPI 5.0 and OpenCL 1.2 support, as well as the ability to read GPU details for AMD Radeon HD 7970 and Nvidia GeForce GT 640 videocards.
Pricing for AIDA64 runs $40 for the Extreme Edition (home/personal use), $80 for the Business Edition (commercial), and $150 for the Extreme Edition Engineer License (commercial).
