The latest version of AIDA64, the diagnostic and information software, added very interesting elements.
With the 5.70 update, AIDA64 has now received support for AMD Zen from the Summit Ridge series and Intel’s Kaby Lake. Both types of the processors can now be identified by the software, which means there are devices using them, at least in a prototype form, therefore, in the following months we will find out concrete information about their performance.
Besides that, AIDA64 has also received support for a series of benchmarks that use the AVX and FMA instructions, support for keyboards, Corsair sensors and sources, Kingston and Samsung SSDs, plus detailed information about mobile video cards, such as GeForce MX series and some low end Radeon cards.
Currently there’s no support for video cards based on the new Polaris and Pascal arhitectures, but most likely it will be integrated in the next update.
