We reported on this once before, but now it's official -- a company called FinalWire has officially taken the reigns of Everest, discontinued the popular benchmarking suite, and replaced it with AIDA64.
"Today is a significant step forward in our progress to deliver a class-leading diagnostics and benchmarking solution," said Tamas Miklos , managing director of FinalWire. "The addition of Lavalys' customers and technologies will enable us to accelerate investments, meet a wider set of customer needs through a richer solution set, increase efficiencies, and significantly expand our opportunities for growth."
Existing Everest owners need only verify their previous purchase by providing their name, email address, and product key in order to migrate to AIDA64 free of charge. Those with an expired license can purchase an upgrade license for 30 percent off.
AIDA64 is essentially the same program as Everest, built by the same developers, only actively updated to support modern hardware.
