Monitoring software has been updated to support Intel’s upcoming 14th Gen Core processors, codenamed Raptor Lake Refresh. The latest version of the HWINFO software now has the capability to identify individual SKUs, although specific names have not been disclosed. However, rumors have already emerged about the i9-14900K, i7-14700K, and i5-14600K SKUs, which are expected to be released in two months.
Furthermore, the software has also been enhanced to cater to the next-generation Xeon CPU series, known as Granite Rapids and Sierra Forest, which are anticipated to power data centers in 2024. The monitoring capabilities for these CPUs have been improved, as mentioned in the changelog.
In addition to these updates, HWiNFO now accurately displays all relevant information for the RTX 4060 Ti graphics card with 16GB of memory. This will be great news for gamers who have chosen this GPU. The software also provides support for RX 6650/6450M mobile graphics, which were released earlier this year.
However, for those considering upgrading to the 14th Gen series, it is advisable not to rush with the update just yet. These processors are scheduled for launch in October or later. Users can download the latest version of HWINFO directly from the developer’s website.
The changelog for HWINFO 7.60 includes several other enhancements and additions. Sensor monitoring on revised GIGABYTE B550 series has been enhanced, and recognition of Renesas RAA229004 has been added. Fan speed monitoring on later MSI laptops has also been improved. The software now includes support for AMD Radeon RX 6550M and 6450M, and the physical drive limit has been extended to 256. Additionally, monitoring of DIMM temperatures on Ice Lake-SP, Sapphire Rapids, and Emerald Rapids has been added.
Other notable changes include improved power monitoring on later NVIDIA cards with new drivers, a fix for a possible race condition in CPU monitoring on some Intel systems, and the addition of fan speed monitoring on ASUS ROG Strix G513I, G513Q, G713I, G713Q notebook series. The update also introduces new reporting features for AVX10 and APX ISA, ZHAOXIN KaiSheng KH-40000, and advanced GIGABYTE BIOS options and AGESA version (Z790+, X670+).
