AIDA64 Extreme Edition is a streamlined Windows diagnostic and benchmarking software for home users. AIDA64 Extreme Edition provides a wide range of features 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. AIDA64 is compatible with all current 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems, including Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.
• 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, SSE, XOP, FMA, AVX and AVX2 instructions, and scale up to 32 processor threads. 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. Learn more…
• System stress testing
AIDA64 System Stability Test uses a 64-bit multi-threaded stress testing module to drive the computer to its absolute limits. Temperature and voltage readings can be monitored while the stress test reveals any potential stability and reliability issues. Hard disk, SSD and OpenCL GPGPU video adapter stress testing is also available.
• Temperature, voltage and cooling fan monitoring
AIDA64 supports over 250 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.
• Hardware diagnostics
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 150,000 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.
Changes in v3.00.2500 (06/03/2013):
• New cache and memory benchmarks
The completely rewritten cache and memory bandwidth benchmarks now utilize AVX2, AVX and SSE instructions of the latest AMD, Intel and VIA processors; and use up to 32 threads for read, write and copy bandwidth measurement. The brand new cache and memory latency benchmark now uses a block-random method to eliminate the effect of hardware prefetchers, and to minimize TLB misses. For legacy processors all benchmarks and the System Stability Test are available in 32-bit version as well.
•Optimized 64-bit benchmarks for AMD “Kabini” and “Temash” APUs
AIDA64 CPUID Panel, Cache & Memory Benchmark panel, System Stability Test, and all memory and processor benchmarks are fully optimized for AMD “Kabini” and “Temash”desktop, mobile and tablet APUs, utilizing AVX, SSE4.1 and AES-NI instructions. Detailed chipset information for AMD “Yangtze” integrated Fusion Controller Hub. Improved support for the upcoming AMD “Kaveri” and “Beema” APUs.
• Next-generation Intel processors and chipsets support
AVX2 and FMA optimized 64-bit benchmarks for the upcoming Intel “Haswell” desktop and mobile processors. Extended chipset information for Intel “Lynx Point” and “Lynx Point-LP” PCHs, and for the integrated memory controller of Intel “Haswell” processors. AIDA64 benchmarks and System Stability Test utilize Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2), Fused Multiply-Add (FMA) instructions, and AES-NI hardware acceleration of the new Intel processors. Improved support for Intel “Avoton” and “Valleyview” SoC, “Haswell-E” and “Ivy Bridge-E” CPU. Preliminary L4 cache bandwidth and latency benchmarks for the upcoming Intel “Crystal Well” processor.
