I didn't know about this tool before...
Unfortunately I do not see a detailed description of how exactly it loads CPU and
if it does any validation/verification. cpuburn is more explicit about this and
is kind of proven. Besides it has additional stuff like e.g. burnBX/burnMMX.
So, I would I love to still have it.
Thank you for pointing me to sysutils/stress in any case.
