NAME

cpuburn, burnBX, burnK6, burnK7, burnMMX, burnP5, burnP6 - a collection of programs to put heavy load on CPU  

SYNOPSIS

burnBX
burnK6
burnK7
burnMMX
burnP5
burnP6
 

DESCRIPTION

These programs are designed to load x86 CPUs as heavily as possible for the purposes of system testing. They have been optimized for different processors. FPU and ALU instructions are coded an assembler endless loop. They do not test every instruction. The goal has been to maximize heat production from the CPU, putting stress on the CPU itself, cooling system, motherboard (especially voltage regulators) and power supply (likely cause of burnBX/MMX errors).
