TechTool Pro goes 64-bit, offering enhanced RAM testing
Software company Micromat, maker of the popular TechTool Pro diagnostics and repair utility, has come out with a new version of the program. TechTool Pro 7 has been rewritten in 64-bit code, which among general enhancements to the software makes it possible to better test memory on modern Mac systems.
One of the key new features in TechTool Pro 7 is its new memory test routine, which is recommended for whenever a system is experiencing random crashes, or when you have installed new memory modules. While Apple’s included hardware test suite is a robust option for testing memory, sometimes one test’s approach may miss some error types, so it can be useful to have another on hand.
