Vega 10, Polaris 10 / Polaris 11, Pascal GP104 Support for AIDA64 Confirmed
Remember how we had reported on Polaris 11 Chips being spotted on Zauba because code names Ellesmere, Baffin and Greenland were used? Well, now two things have happened back to back. Firstly we know that AIDA64 has gotten support for Vega 10, Polaris 10 / Polaris 11 and Pascal GP104; secondly, we know that we were right about those code names.
It has been confirmed that the known system information, diagnostics and benchmarking solution for Windows is now going to feature the new architectures as well.
A new update has been made to the software; titled 5.70.3843 beta, thee update was made yesterday i.e. on May 11, 2016 and has confirmed that the platform now supports the new architectures. Here’s a rundown on the changelog in case you have been using AIDA64 before:
- Preliminary GPU information for AMD Polaris 10 (Ellesmere)
- Preliminary GPU information for AMD Polaris 11 (Baffin)
- Preliminary GPU information for AMD Vega 10 (Greenland)
- Preliminary GPU information for nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (GP104)
- Improved memory type detection for AMD GPUs
- Intel Processor Number detection for Pentium D1519
- Intel Processor Number detection for Xeon D-1529, D-1539, D-1559
- Extended sensor support for AquaStream Ultimate
- Fixed: motherboard specific sensor info for MSI MS-7881, 7882, 7883, 7885 (too low Vcore)
Last but not the least this reveals that Polaris 10 is Ellesmere, Polaris 11 is Baffin, and Vega 10 is Greenland, too.
The Pascal and Polaris support for AIDA64 means you will be able to continue using their services even with the new graphics cards without much problem.
