FinalWire AIDA64 v4.5 Now Available
The new AIDA64 v4.5 release introduces a multi-threaded OpenCL GPGPU AES-256 benchmark to measure cryptographic processing performance of modern graphics processors and APUs. It also provides extended Mantle API diagnostics for the latest AMD Radeon graphics accelerators, and supports the latest video adapters and storage devices.
OpenCL GPGPU AES-256 cryptography benchmark
A new multi-threaded OpenCL GPGPU benchmark to measure AES-256 cryptographic processing performance of modern graphics processors and APUs. On-the-fly OpenCL kernel compilation with automatic vectorization and unroll optimizations. Support for AMD CrossFireX, AMD DualGraphics and nVIDIA SLI configurations with simultaneous benchmarking of all available GPU and APU devices. Mixed configurations (e.g. AMD GPU + nVIDIA GPU), multi-GPU video adapters, OpenCL-capable IGPs and APUs are fully supported. Heavily optimized native x86/x64 CPU benchmarks are also included for comparison purposes.
Extended AMD Mantle graphics accelerator diagnostics
Detailed information on discrete and integrated GPUs supporting the new AMD Mantle low-level graphics API. The Mantle page of AIDA64 v4.5 has been enhanced to cover GPU clocks, TMU count, profiling information, API versions, and video memory details. Queue, memory heap and device extension enumeration is also available for both GCN and GCN2 family Radeon GPUs.
Next-generation Intel processors and chipsets support
AVX2 and FMA optimized 64-bit benchmarks for the upcoming Intel “Broadwell” desktop and mobile processors. Chipset information for Intel “Broadwell PCH-LP” integrated south bridge, and for the integrated memory controller of Intel “Broadwell” 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 the upcoming Intel Core i7 “Haswell-E” high-end desktop CPUs, Intel Xeon “Haswell-EP” server CPUs, DDR4 memory modules, and XMP 2.0 memory profiles. Preliminary support for Intel “Skylake”, “Cherry Trail”, “Denverton” processors.
Support for the latest hardware technologies
Multi-threaded OpenCL GPGPU benchmarks, graphics processor, OpenGL and GPGPU details, temperature and cooling fan monitoring for the latest GPUs: AMD Radeon R9 295X2, FirePro W9100; nVIDIA GeForce GT 705, GeForce GT 720, GeForce GT 740, GeForce GTX Titan Z. A-Data SP920 SSD support. Revamped enumeration of supported display modes for LCD and CRT monitors. Fixed support for AMD Hainan and Sun GPUs.
According to Tamas Miklos, CEO and lead developer at FinalWire: “Besides our regular updates supporting the latest technologies and innovations, the core AIDA64 features are key to our customers. We could also feel the turbulence caused by the end of support for Microsoft Windows XP as AIDA64 is widely used by system administrators to take a precise hardware and software inventory of PCs connected to their network. With AIDA64, you can get accurate data from even thousands of computers in a few seconds, and then you can easily identify machines running outdated or unsupported software, which greatly helps the IT staff estimate upgrade volume and costs”,
