Loop Burn

Here’s a small program I created and used to test the Single Core Launcher I talked about in my last post. It’ll run both cores in a dual-core processor at 100% (i.e. it’ll use 100% of a dual-core CPU). It might be useful to someone else.

LoopBurn -> download here!

Note: It is not generic and will not scale to processors with more than 2 cores, so this will only burn 2 cores if you have a quad core setup.

Oh, and it doesn’t do anything special it’s just incrementing variables. I was going to have it display something, but output to the console actually incurred a delay which lowered CPU/core usage.
