Most of you know what Linpack is I guess. In case you don't, it's a benchmark designed to measure performance on Intel CPUs in GFlops. But it's also a very useful tool for checking the stability of a CPU.
Now back on topic. A short pretty long now while ago I wrote a small graphical front-end for it, named it LinX and hosted it on a great Russian overclockers' forum forums.overclockers.ru.
Changes in latest LinX v0.6.4:
- added an option to run tests for a specified period of time. Use the drop-down list to set minutes or times to run tests
- small UI redesign/enhancements
- graph windows now correctly save their positions on program close
- fixed a somewhat rare bug leading to false LinX errors when CPU usage was high
- added new command-line options, fixed found bugs in older ones (run LinX.exe -help to view the list of command-line options)
- added seconds to filenames to prevent overwriting
Complete changelog for all versions is in the archive.
Couple of screenshots:
Some main features:› a simple and intuitive interfaceNote that I'm rather new to programming, so there may be some bugs in there. Should you find one, report it and I'll do my best to fix it.
› max available memory detection and an option to use all available memory
› both Intel and AMD CPU support (thanks Right from forums.overclockers.ru for that)
› both 32 and 64-bit Linpack support
› Intel HyperThreading support (Pentium 4, Atom, Corei7) and ability to override the number of testing threads
› Linpack can be started with different priorities
› elapsed, estimated and approximate finish time displaying
› ability to test for a specified period of time
› optional sound beep on error/successful pass
› settings for the last run are remembered
› visual indication of testing process to quickly determine possible system hang
› monitoring data import from Everest or Speedfan and ability to create graphs for core temperature, fan speed, vcore and +12V voltage
› screenshot and graph saving in PNG format
› tray icon
› command-line keys support to automate testing (run LinX.exe -help for full list)
› no additional redistributable packages needed
› no installation required (however, there is a version with installer too )
And note that I'm Russian, so some mistakes in text may also be present.
