New AIDA64 update adds support for AMD Matisse, Windows 10 May 2019 and SHA3-512
The ubiquitous hardware diagnostics suite AIDA64 has been updated to a new version, v6.00. This upgrade adds AVX2- and FMA-accelerated benchmarks for AMD's upcoming SoCs that are code-named Matisse at present. It also adds support for the new Microsoft Windows 10 May 2019 update. AIDA64 v6.00 also now includes a SHA3-512 cryptographic hash benchmark.
This new multi-threaded hash benchmark uses AVX, AVX2, AVX-512, BMI2, and XOP optimizations. It is (obviously) 64-bit, although there is also support for 32-bit legacy counterparts that use AMD K5, K6, K7, K8, K10 or Intel Pentium processors. The updated AIDA64 is also now compatible with a range of up-to-date peripherals or components such as:
- BeadaPanel LCDs
- OLED SteelSeries Rival 710
- Corsair H100i Platinum/H115i Platinum liquid cooler sensors
- Cooler Master MP750 RGB LED mousepads
- Corsair Obsidian 1000D
- EVGA iCX2
- Farbwerk 360
- NZXT GRID+ V3
This new form of AIDA64 also offers preliminary support for Intel Comet Lake CPUs and AMD Navi GPUs. It can also give details on Radeon VII, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1600 series and the RTX 2060. Finally, it also makes SHA1 and VP8 benchmarks obsolete.
