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.
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.
LinX is provided under a freeware license on Windows from the benchmark software category with no restrictions on usage. Download and installation of this PC software is free and 0.6.5 is the latest version last time we checked.
Compatibility with this CPU benchmarking software may vary, but will generally run fine under Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. Depending on the options available for downloading, separate versions may be available from Alexander Gusev depending on the target system architecture.
We have tested LinX 0.6.5 against malware with several different programs. We certify that this program is clean of viruses, malware and trojans.
