Passmark BurnInTest is a utility that thoroughly exercises your system hardware in a very short time period just as other normal apps use the PC over a long time period. Doing this utilizes the fact that hardware tends to fail either in very early life or after thousand hours of usage. This tool should be typically used before putting a computer into service. The purpose of the program is to bring any hidden or intermittent problems to the surface so that once a successful check is carried out, the system can be used with confidence. Not only this, the app can be used by those overclockers who need to verify the stability of system at high clock speeds.
The application makes use of SIMD calculations and mathematical operations to test the CPU, RAM, hard drives, DVDs, CD burners, CD ROMs, 2D graphics, sound cards, printers, network connection, video playback, etc. Being multi-threaded, the program allows doing all this simultaneously. One of the most useful diagnostic tools for Windows!
