Test the CPU and see its power.

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 and benchmarker developed by Alexander Gusev for Windows. It's light on system resources, powerful, user friendly and well-designed.

The download has been 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 LinX to illustrate the user interface and 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.

Features of LinX

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

Compatibility and License

LinX is provided under a freeware license on Windows from benchmark software 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.

What version of Windows can LinX run on?

LinX can be used on a computer running Windows 11 or Windows 10. Previous versions of the operating system shouldn't be a problem with Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista having been tested. Windows XP is supported. It comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit downloads.
