cpuburn: X86 CPU stress test1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

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).

burnP5 is optimized for Intel Pentium w&w/o MMX processors burnP6 is for Intel PentiumPro, PentiumII&III and Celeron CPUs burnK6 is for AMD K6 processors burnK7 is for AMD Athlon/Duron processors burnMMX is to test cache/memory interfaces on all CPUs with MMX burnBX is an alternate cache/memory test for Intel CPUs

cpuburn is a shell wrapper for easy use of this applications
