    Software remains the same. You have a new name and a new splash screen. :)

    You can use it as trial, for free.

    When the program had a freeware version (the last was the Everest Home Edition 2.20), most of the users did not buy it.
    So they decided to discontinue the freeware product.

    That's what the app was called before Everest.

    AIDA32 → Lavalys Everest → FinalWire AIDA64

    Enthusiasts, corporate IT departments, anyone who wants a thorough system diagnostics program with some CPU, memory, and disk benchmarks thrown in.

    I've used Everest for years, paid every year, as it's one of the most relaivble monitoring tools out there, and they have been quick to provide liscenced users with fixes for when things do not work as accurately as they should.

    It's a good tool. Anyway, this news was "offical" over the weekend...

    Funny enough, I just paid for AIDA64 this weekend. I just got my GTX 580 and went looking to see what was new with Everest and that's when I found out it was essentially dead.

    AIDA32 is what Everest was called way back before Lavalys bought them out so now Finalwire owns it they moniker it AIDA64 problem with that is it's not even an true 64bit program but they insist that IF your running an 64bit capable CPU then the 32bit kernel of the program will call for 64bit versions of the benchmarks to be run REALLY .....:confused:

    not quite if you have both programs run the CPUID portion and see if there's a difference between the two

    notice the BIOS version table in AIDA64 that isn't in the Everest 5.50 one

    Under 64-bit operating systems AIDA64 will perform all bencmarks using native 64-bit code. It also runs the System Stability Test using native 64-bit code then.
