RightMark CPU Clock Utility v1.8
RM Clock Utility (formerly known as AMD64CLK)

RightMark CPU Clock Utility (RMClock) is a small GUI application designed for real-time CPU frequency, throttling and load level monitoring and on-the-fly adjustment of the CPU performance level of the supported CPUs via processor's power management model-specific registers (MSRs). In automatic management mode it continuously monitors the CPU usage level and dynamically adjusts the CPU frequency, throttle and/or voltage level as needed.

Features
Real-time CPU clock and CPU/OS load level determination and monitoring (with optional logging).
Detection of virtually any form of CPU clock throttling.
Dynamic on-demand CPU performance state (P-state) transitions via real-time adjustment of the CPU multiplier (FID) and requested voltage level (VID).
Dynamic on-demand CPU clock modulation via real-time transitions between CPU clock throttling levels.
Advanced CPU-specific power management settings for AMD K7, AMD K8 and Intel Pentium M/Pentium 4/Xeon CPU families.
Support for multi-processor (SMP/HT/multicore) systems.

RightMark Memory Analyzer v3.6
Before this test packet was created there was no proper software for measuring vital system parameters such as CPU/Chipset/RAM providing steady and reliable (reproducible) test results and allowing for changing test parameters in a wide range. Vital low-level system characteristics include latency and real RAM bandwidth, average/minimal latency of different cache levels and its associativity, real L1-L2 cache bandwidth and TLB levels specs. Besides, these aspects are usually not paid sufficient attention in product technical documentation (CPU or chipset). Such test suite, which combines a good deal of subsets aimed at measuring objective system characteristics, is a must have for estimating crucial objective platform parameters.

RAMTester Utility 2005
The RAMTester tool checks reliability of memory modules under MS Windows (x86 and x64), working with virtual addresses. It writes various bit patterns into memory cells and then reads them and compares with reference. Note that the check is qualitative, so you might want to use utilities working with real addresses under DOS to obtain more quantitative data.

The new tool works only with free available physical memory at runtime, so you can check any amount of memory that doesn't exceed this limit. For the amount of currently free available memory you can check Windows Task Manager ("Physical Memory Available" in the Performance tab). The new utility works with SMP and HTT systems as well as various memory types, including SDRAM, DDRAM, RDRAM, etc.

RM Gotcha (formerly known as RM Spy and RM Infiltrator)
RM Gotcha (formerly known as RM Spy and RM Infiltrator) helps CPU and mainboard testers determine CPU clock at any moment. RM Gotcha has only this particular purpose and is not a part of any monster suites. It's just an 120KB executable that needs no installation. Supports result logging. The "Start delay" feature enables users to conduct operations required to be done before the clock check. The Check period feature minimizes CPU load created by the utility.

CPU RightMark Suite
The CPU RightMark suite is meant for objective measurement of performance of modern and future processors in different computational tasks such as numerical modeling of physical processes and solving of 3D graphic problems. It focuses on testing the loaded FPU/SIMD units and the CPU/RAM tandem. As a result, we get pure CPU performance, an objective parameter obtained without the influence of other subsystems, like video and disc systems, except the memory one. It allows us to compare the true performance of different processors irrespective of a type of other system components. It's obtained by dealing only with the CPU and measuring the CPU time spent for execution of computational tasks.

Currently supported CPU Instructions sets:

(Solver module)
FPU
SSE2
SSE3

(Renderer module)
FPU/MMX
FPU/Extended MMX
Extended 3DNow!/Extended MMX
SSE/Extended MMX
SSE3/Extended MMX
