Micromat has announced the imminent release of TechTool Pro 4.5, the Universal Binary version of TechTool Pro that will run on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs. It fully supports the hardware changes introduced to the Macintosh platform with the introduction of the new MacIntel chipsets. All of the features of the program that were previously available for PowerPC based Macs will now be available for Intel-based Macs as well. This includes the eDrive (emergency startup partition) feature of the program. In addition to Universal Binary support, the new release will also include some significant program enhancements, including improved Disk Controller test routines. TechTool Pro 4.5.1 will begin shipping in early July 2006, and will be priced at US$98 ($59 upgrade).
