AIDA64 Extreme is intended to diagnose, benchmark and monitor both the operating system and computer hardware. Thus, the program can help you take decisions to solve various types of problems related to the processor, RAM memory and disks. Although the tool itself is quite easy to use, it is not appropriate for inexpert users, who probably would not know what to do with the data provided. In this regard, it is important to say that its interface really helps users browse through the different components of a computer as they are properly arranged into self-explicable categories.
Fortunately, the application can give you information about practically all hardware areas, such as processor overclocking, temperature settings and power management. Likewise, it provides data regarding your installed software and operating system, which include but are not limited to running processes, software libraries, shared resources, printers and media codecs.
One of the main uses of the tool is to benchmark your computer, which lets you assess its capabilities and compare them with those of other systems. In this regard, it even creates a sort of rank in which your system is placed so that you can know how updated and powerful it is. Benchmarking results can be easily exported as reports.
To sum up, no wonder AIDA64 Extreme is the favorite program of its type for many users. The application is highly stable even when it puts your system into an intensive strain. However, you should bear in mind that there are various editions of AIDA64 with different features and prices.
