LinX Icon


Fernando Ortega

Processor benchmark utility which is lightweight, easy to setup and able to detect issues, errors and bottlenecks for AMD and Intel CPUs.

LinX is a freeware CPU benchmarking app that's been categorized by our editors under the benchmark software category and made available by Alexander Gusev for Windows.

The review for LinX has not been completed yet, but it was tested by an editor here on a PC and a list of features has been compiled; see below. We've also created some screenshots of the user interface to show the overall usage and features of this CPU benchmarking program.

A benchmarking tool for CPUs testing GFlops

LinX is designed to be a simple interface for Intel Linpack Benchmark. It checks stability of the system and can detect hardware errors. The main point of Linpack is to solve systems of linear equations. It is designed as a benchmark to test the performance of a system in GFlops - billions of floating point operation per second.

But it is also the most stressful CPU testing program to date and is a great tool to determine CPU stability. One and the same system of equations is solved repeatedly; if all results match each other - the CPU is stable, otherwise the instability is obvious, since the same sytem cannot produce different solutions.

LinX is software which can benchmark CPU speed.


  • A simple and intuitive interface
  • Automatic error control, to stop the test at detecting errors
  • Support for Intel and AMD
  • Support Intel HyperThreading (Pentium IV, Atom, Core i7), the choice of the number of streams for testing
  • Definition of the available memory and the ability to use all of its 32 - and 64-bit mode testing
  • Remembering the last settings, run Audible indication of events
  • Visual display to quickly determine the possible changing system
  • Calculation of time until the completion of testing
  • Import values from the monitoring of Everest / Speedfan and the ability to build schedules temperature / voltage / fan speed
