Front-end to the latest version of Linpack, stress testing for PC systems.

Linpack Xtreme is a free tool which functions as a console front-end to the latest version of Linpack, a popular and useful PC stress testing tool.

Among its many features, Linpack can solve a dense system (real * 8) of linear equations (Ax = b), measure the time needed to consider and solve the system, convert this time into performance but also evaluate and test the results for accuracy.

The main point of Linpack Xtreme is to provide a usable interface for performing benchmarking as well as stress testing results with current binaries of Linpack, unlike many other tools which tend not to.

The utility can be useful for overclockers, testing the extremes at which their systems will function with acceptable stability. It can use all or just one thread, a set amount of RAM and disable the PC's sleep function while the test is running.

To ensure that the results are as accurate as possible, note that Linpack Xtreme uses partial pivoting to guarantee the accuracy of the results.

All in all, this application is an easy-to-use and portable stress testing tool for Windows where you will be able to perform a stress test of your processor in order to obtain reference information.
