Hi list!

I'm searching for some good CPU synthetic test. I've found a few, but
their last update where from ~1996, and don't know if they are the right
tools to test modern CPU chips.

The only problem with old code is that it might not compile with
modern GCC.  In which case you fix it and run the test.  You might
also have to enlarge the data set so that it doesn't all sit in the

Otherwise, the Byte Unix Benchmark, Dhrystone, Whetstone&  LINPACK
are as (in)valid today as they were 30 years ago.

Thanks for the reply Ron.

I've two problems with that.

First, I'm not as good on C to change the code.
I'm not sure if it stress multiples cores on one CPU.

Run multiple simultaneous benchmarks?

May be doing some test. Rendering a blender image?

How do you do your CPU benchmarks test?

I don't.  But then I'm just a home desktop user.

Seek truth from facts.
