Gianluca's stability tests

New-technology stability tests by Gianluca Fisanotti, created using µGP3 for a defind microprocessor. These tests stress specific microarchitectural features of the target designs. Thus, they are extremely fast and does not cause much heating, but are unlikely to work on a different microprocessor...

Maria & Giuseppe's stability tests

New-technology stability tests by Maria Di Vincenzo and Giuseppe Parlato, created using µGP3 for a defind microprocessor. As Fisanotti ones, these tests stress specific microarchitectural features of the target designs. Thus, they are extremely fast and does not cause much heating, but are unlikely to work on a different microprocessor...
