Package description for 'cpuburn'

x86 CPU stress test

 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
