Cinebench
Cinebench is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer's performance capabilities. Cinebench is based on MAXON's award-winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. Cinebench is the perfect tool to compare CPU and graphics performance across various systems and platforms. The test procedure consists of two main components - the graphics card performance test and the CPU performance test.

HeavyLoad
HeavyLoad simulates a heavy load on your computer and tests the reliability of resources like processor, memory or hard disks. Hence you can test the stability of a computer or server before using it in a productive system. The individual test methods employed by HeavyLoad can be customized to fit your needs. On a system featuring multiple processor cores, for example, you can select how many of the available cores shall be used or set the speed in which the test file is to be written on your hard disk.
