Passmark's BurnInTest is a software tool that allows all the major sub-systems of a computer to be simultaneously stress tested for endurance, reliability and stability.
The cost of computer hardware failure can be enormous. In many cases, lost data can never be replaced and businesses can be brought to their knees, with the loss of documentation, customer details and financial records.
BurnInTest thoroughly exercises PC hardware in a short period of time so that intermittent or hidden problems are found before it turns into a disaster. BurnInTest can also be used by overclockers to verify system stability and reliability at high clock speeds
BurnInTest tests the CPU, Hard drives, CD ROMs, Sound cards, 2D graphics, 3D graphics, RAM, Network connections & Printers. The 'Pro' version can also do serial and parallel port testing. This can all be done simultaneously as the application is multithreaded.
