Popular system information and benchmark software AIDA64 has just received its latest update to version 5.90. The update includes various improvements, but the headline news this time around is that AIDA64 now properly supports AMD Ryzen processors and their Socket AM4 motherboards. FinalWire, the developer of AIDA64, had warned previously that benchmark results on Ryzen processors may not have been accurate before today's update.
AIDA64's Ryzen support includes preliminary support for server processors based on the same Zen CPU core, like the Naples chip we've heard about before. Across the aisle, Intel's latest Atom-family chips—code-named Apollo Lake—are also freshly-supported in version 5.90. Along with that, FinalWire implemented support for a bunch of upcoming Intel CPUs from the Cannonlake, Coffee Lake, Denverton, Kaby Lake-X, and Skylake-X families.
The new version of AIDA also has support for Microsoft's Windows 10 Creators Update, with fixes and optimizations going into the ACPI queries, tree enumeration, and temperature measurement modules. The Creators Update is about to hit in April, so the time is nigh.
If you're already an AIDA64 user, check out the full release notes. If you haven't used AIDA64, it can be an incredibly handy tool for troubleshooting. Even if everything's working properly for you, benchmarks are always fun too. Grab a 30-day free trial of AIDA64 5.90 at FinalWire's website.
