AMD Zen Summit Ridge and Intel Kaby Lake Spotted in AIDA64 Changelog
FinalWare recently released AIDA64 version 5.70.3800 which has added support for AMD Zen Summit Ridge and Intel Kaby Lake processors.
Being one of the most important system information provider software, this essentially confirms that the highly anticipated AMD Zen processor is on the way.
It goes without saying that the developers of hardware testing utilities are among the first ones to receive AO engineering samples and are often up-to-dated with the on-going progress of a specific product.
While it is not confirmed as of this moment, it is safe to assume that the said developers already have or will soon be getting their hands on AO engineering samples. You can read the entire change-log below:
- AVX and FMA accelerated FP32 and FP64 ray tracing benchmarks
