PassMark BurnInTest 5.3 build 1004

Posted on Thursday, April 12 2007 @ 10:21:37 CEST by

New functionality:
  • Multi-monitor 2D, 3D and Video tests (BurnInTest Pro only) are now available. Test windows (2D, 3D and Video playback) can be started across multiple monitors (up to 4). The Window positioning and size can be specified.
  • The 3D test has been improved. The 3D ball test has been replaced with a more complex 3D terrain test. This will more thoroughly exercise modern graphics cards.
  • A new 2D GUI (Graphical User Interface) test has been added to the standard 2D graphics test to exercise common Windows controls.
  • The Video test has been changed to allow 4 video files to be specified (up from 3).
  • The video card description is now collected for a larger range of Vista systems.
  • When running the CD test under BartPE (Pre-install environment) 4 additional specific files are skipped as they are unavailable for testing.
  • On some systems, the Disk test could pause momentarily even when a duty cycle of 100% was specified. This pause has been removed.
  • A command line parameter -P has been added to allow the BurnInTest directory to be used rather than the User's personal directory. This may be useful when running BurnInTest from a USB drive for example.
  • A command line parameter -X has been added to skip the DirectX version checking on BurnInTest start-up.
  • A number of undocumented command line parameters have been documented:
    • -B: BurnInTest will generate additional Serial port test information when activity trace level 2 logging is set.
    • -E [data]: Specifies the test data to use in the serial port test.
    • -M: Automatically display the Machine ID Window when BurnInTest is started.
    • -U: Force BurnInTest to set logging on at startup.
  • A new version of rebooter has been included (supporting the /P command line parameter - see above).
Platform support changes:
  • Windows 98 and ME are no longer supported. Please see our website download page for an older version supporting Windows 98 and ME.
Bug corrections:
  • Corrected a problem introduced in BurnInTest v5.2 where BurnInTest could run out of memory (the main symptom) when tests where run for long periods (> 12hours).
  • Resolved an issue where BurnInTest would fail to start on Vista systems with DEP enabled for all programs.
  • Corrected a bug introduced in BurnInTest V5.2 where selecting accumulated logging could lead to rebooter failing to launch.
  • Corrected a bug where BurnInTest would fail to start on certain Vista systems.
  • Corrected a bug where some files (where the full path was not specified) would be incorrectly referenced in the Program Files directory, rather than the User's personal directory.
  • A change has been made to support Hmonitor temperature monitoring on Vista.
  • WIN64 specific: Corrected a bug where the number of cores reported on a Quad core system was incorrectly reported as CPU packages.
