N E W burnK7 for the AMD Athlon/Duron has been released.
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
P6 is for Intel PentiumPro, PentiumII&III and Celeron CPUs
K6 is for AMD K6 processors
K7 is for AMD Athlon/Duron processors
MMX is to test cache/memory interfaces on all CPUs with MMX
BX is an alternate cache/memory test for Intel CPUs
