AIDA64 Extreme Edition is the successor of the highly popular application EVEREST
AIDA64 Extreme Edition is a professional and reliable application designed to assist in overclocking, hardware error diagnosis, stress testing, and sensor monitoring. It has unique capabilities to assess the performance of the processor, system memory, and disk drives.
CPU, memory and disk benchmarks
AIDA64 implements a set of 64-bit benchmarks to measure how fast the computer performs various data processing tasks and mathematical calculations. Memory and cache benchmarks are available to analyze system RAM bandwidth and latency. Processor benchmarks utilize MMX, 3DNow! and SSE instructions, and scale up to 32 processor cores. For legacy processors all benchmarks are available in 32-bit version as well. AIDA64 Disk Benchmark determines the data transfer speed of hard disk drives, solid-state drives, optical drives, and flash memory based devices.
Temperature, voltage and cooling fan monitoring
AIDA64 supports over 150 various sensor devices to measure temperatures, voltages, fan speeds, and power draw. Measured values can be displayed on System Tray icons, OSD panel, Sidebar Gadget, and Logitech G15/G19 Gaming Keyboard LCD. The values can also be logged to file or exported to external applications such as RivaTuner or Samurai. AIDA64 can also alarm the user when it detects overheating, over-voltage, or cooling fan failure.
AIDA64 has the most accurate hardware detection capabilities in its class, to provide detailed information on the computer internals without the need to open it up. The hardware detection module is strengthened by an exhaustive hardware database holding over 120,000 entries. Additional modules are available to overview processor frequencies, check CRT and LCD display status, and stress the system to reveal potential hardware failures and thermal issues.
Software and operating system analysis
AIDA64 provides over 50 pages of information on installed programs, software licenses, security applications, and Windows settings. List of started processes, services, DLL files, startup programs, and visited web pages is also available.
A brand new, highly customizable hardware monitoring module to display temperatures, fan speeds, voltages, currents, clock speeds, and various other system details on a graphical panel on the Windows Desktop.
# Support for the upcoming AMD Bulldozer and Llano processors
AIDA64 CPUID Panel, Cache & Memory Benchmark panel, System Stability Test, and all memory and processor benchmarks are now fully optimized for the upcoming AMD FX-Series Bulldozer processors, and A-Series Llano desktop and mobile APUs. Detailed chipset information for AMD 970, 990X, 990FX, and A75 Hudson-D3 Fusion Controller Hub.
# FMA4 and XOP optimized 64-bit benchmarks and System Stability Test
FPU Julia and FPU Mandel benchmarks utilize FMA4 extensions of AMD Bulldozer processors. CPU Hash benchmark is now optimized for AMD Bulldozer using XOP instructions. System Stability Test module has also been enhanced to put even more stress on the system using FMA4 optimizations.
# Optimized benchmarks for VIA QuadCore processor
All 64-bit AIDA64 benchmarks are now fully optimized for the latest VIA QuadCore and Nano processors. Chipset information is now available for the latest VIA platform controllers, VN1000 and VX900. For legacy processors all benchmarks and the System Stability Test are available in 32-bit version as well.
# Support for the latest graphics technologies
Graphics processor and GPGPU details, temperature and cooling fan monitoring for the latest GPUs: AMD Radeon HD 6970M, nVIDIA GeForce 410M, nVIDIA GeForce GT 520M/545, nVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M, nVIDIA Quadro 7000. Exhaustive Direc3D and OpenGL video card capabilities detection with DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.1 support.
# Rivatuner OSD Server support
Hardware monitoring values (temperatures, fan speeds, voltages) can now be exposed to Rivatuners OSD Server feature via RTSSSharedMemoryV2 shared memory. Rivatuner OSD Server is capable of displaying those values on an OSD in full-screen 3D games.
