TechTool Pro 6.0.5

Send Article to a Friend

Micromat has released TechTool Pro 6.0.5 with compatibility for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion (including Gatekeeper-approved code signing). The update also adds detection of USB 3.0 connection speeds for the USB gauge, updates both creation and removal routines in the eDrive tool, adds a verification check to the Volume Optimization tool, and improves File Sync Cloning in the Volume Cloning tool. The new version squashes a Video Memory bug that caused a crash under Mountain Lion, fixes a memory leak in the Video tool, and addresses Volume Rebuild issues where volumes wouldn’t unmount or would skip to rechecking structures. Finally, the release updates French, German, Italian, Japanese and Chinese (Simplified) localizations. ($99.99 new, free update, 54.8 MB, release notes)

Hm, I updated my old TTPro wanting to make sure the cache memory of my Mac was ok after getting contradictory results using REMber and MEMtest (command line vs GUI, they say different outcomes suggest possible cache failure and to use TT). Sadly TTP gave up testing cache memory a while ago.

What is out there that does test the motherboad and cache memory?
