AIDA64 Extreme Edition is an advanced system diagnostics utility that gathers important information on the computer’s hardware and software configuration. It also lets users test the capabilities of the memory, CPU, and FPU by running complex benchmarks. Suffice it to say, this tool is designed for advanced PC users.
Benefits of AIDA64 Extreme Edition Software
Speedy installation and well-organized interface
The setup procedure is fast and simple. AIDA64 is wrapped in a user-friendly interface with a neatly organized layout, where all information on PC components is broken down into separate categories. It is rather vast and covers general areas of the PC such as overlock, sensors and power management.
A thorough investigation for each PC component
Detailed info can be obtained when it comes to the motherboard (e.g. CPU, chipset, BIOS), operating system (e.g. processes, system drivers, DLL files), server (e.g. shares, local and global groups), display (e.g. GPU, multi-monitor support, OpenGL), multimedia (e.g. audio and video codecs), storage (e.g. physical and optical drives), network (e.g. routes, IE cookies), DirectX, devices (e.g. input, printers), software (e.g. autostart entries, scheduled tasks, file types), security (e.g. firewall, antivirus), configuration (e.g. event logs, system files and folders), and database (e.g. BDE and ODBC drivers).
Run benchmarks and generate reports
When it comes to testing the memory, CPU, and FPU, AIDA64 analyzes the processor, CPU clock, motherboard, chipset, and RAM to rank the computer in a list with other systems by comparison, based on the hardware configuration. Information from any selected areas or all of them can be exported to reports for closer examination and safekeeping.
Configure program settings
As far as AIDA64 Extreme Edition Software configuration is concerned, it is possible to switch to another UI language, change the layout order, point out the output folder for creating reports, enable email notifications when performing benchmarks, filter event logs, add custom components to the list to keep an eye on, and much more.

Aida64 Extreme Temperature FAQs
Both products target business customers, what is the difference between AIDA64 Business and AIDA64 Network Audit?
AIDA64 Business is the most comprehensive product in the portfolio, containing all the functionality available in Extreme, Engineer and Network Audit. Network Audit, on the other hand, is specifically developed for those business customers who are looking for a dedicated hardware and software inventory solution, and do not need other AIDA64 features. It does not support some of the functionality available in other AIDA64 editions, such as remote control and remote monitoring, as well as hardware diagnostics and benchmarks.
Do AIDA64 GPGPU benchmarks use vectorized data types and unrolling techniques to boost performance?
Yes, both in order to make the job of OpenCL compilers a bit easier. The OpenCL compiler may still use additional optimizations, like further unrolling, but it is completely compiler dependent.
On Intel Core i7 “Haswell” processors, the CPU attains significantly better results in the GPGPU benchmarks than the Intel HD Graphics 4600 “GT2” GPU. How is that possible?
AIDA64 CPU benchmarks are heavily optimized for Haswell – and all other modern CPU architectures –, and they utilize all available instruction set extensions, such as SSE, AVX, AVX2, FMA or XOP as well as full vectorization.
Using FMA and AVX2, a quad-core Haswell’s x86/x64 part can indeed perform exceptionally, way better than the GT2 iGPU. It is, however, much easier to write such optimized code for the iGPU in OpenCL than for the CPU using a machine code generator or x86/x64 assembly.
On some computers AIDA64, launched from the logon script, will execute only 5 minutes after the user has logged on. What is the problem?
Since Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2, logon scripts are executed with a 5-minute delay after the user has logged on. If we want to run the logon script without delay, we need to disable this feature in Computer Configuration / Policies / Administrative Templates / System / Group Policy / Configure Logon Script Delay.
Do GPGPU benchmarks support OpenCL 2.0 and HSA on AMD Kaveri systems?
Yes, except for the memory benchmarks.
Currently, memory benchmarks don’t work with HSA, because the current AMD HSA implementation doesn’t yet support forcing the usage of device memory, instead it automatically assumes that allocated memory blocks are to be shared between the CPU and GPU. As soon as AMD’s OpenCL 2.0 and HSA implementations become more mature, these issues will be resolved.
Aida64 Extreme Temperature Older Versions
During benchmarks, AIDA64 Extreme obviously puts a strain on CPU and RAM. However, it uses low resources otherwise. Those interested in extra features may look into AIDA64 Engineer, AIDA64 Business Edition and AIDA64 Network Audit.
