Developers have released a new version of monitoring software HWiNFO 8.00. This version dropped support for the outdated Windows XP OS - developers focused exclusively on x64 systems. Although 32-bit systems are still supported, the official installer will only be compatible with 64-bit versions of Windows. Users can still access the 32-bit version through the portable installer.

At the same time, HWiNFO 8.00 version has received several new features and capabilities. For example, the built-in On-Screen Display (OSD) allows users to display system statistics directly from the HWiNFO tool without the need for additional software. Additionally, HWiNFO still supports the Riva Statistic Server for those who prefer this tool, eliminating the need for any additional installations.

So, the key innovations in HWiNFO 8.00:

  • Added fully integrated OSD.
  • Support for Windows XP/Vista discontinued.
  • HWiNFO installer has been moved to Unicode for better support of multiple languages.
  • HWiNFO installer now only contains HWiNF064 and requires Windows 7 x64 or newer version.
  • Outdated HWiNFO32 is only available in the portable version.
  • Improved sensor monitoring on ASUS NUC devices.
  • Improved monitoring of the status of some NVMe drives connected via Intel RST.
  • Improved sensor monitoring on ASUS TUF GAMING Z790-PRO WIFI.
  • Updated automatic startup mechanism for better display of actual status.
  • Fixed automatic startup (via the launch panel) due to new OSD requirements.
  • Fixed some errors in OSD settings.
  • Added support for Aquacomputer VISION and VISION RGBpx sensors.
  • Improved sensor monitoring on new GIGABYTE Z790 and B760 series motherboards.
  • Added NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 (AD103) and GeForce RTX 4060 (AD106).
  • Improved support for Raptor Lake-PS.
  • Fixed support for iGPU AMD Hawk Point.

You can download the new version of HWiNFO 8.0 from the official project website.
