Use Orthos as it is based on prime 95 and it is used by millions of people over prime 95.

This is the one that works with dual core and if your using a Quad-Core then you will have to run two instances of the program at the same time to test all cores.

Prime 95 on the other hand you will need to run 4 instances of the program to run all 4 cores, Orthos is much better built and only needs two instances to run all 4 cores.

Not true the new beta of prime 95 supports multiple core. I was playing around with it and only have it running on one core right now... but I did have it on 2 when I was playing around with it.

Where did you get the latest version from Shawn? I heared there was a new multicore version out, that's why I wanted to download it.
But the dns record seems to be MIA.

Interesting for sure as it is about time ... only took the developers of prime 95 2 years to get a Multi-Core version of Prime 95 out.

Either way Orthos is Prime 95, but with a GUI is all. The developer of Orthos did this so it looked all nice and dandy.

Then he created his Beta version that accepted Dual-Cores and that was pretty quick after the First Dual-Core came out.

The developers of Prime 95 did not develop a Dual-Core program (at that time) and this is why many use Orthos now and i am willing to bet the developer will no doubt make Orthos use 4 cores in the near future.

This is the latest version of Prime 95 that i can find, which is suppose to allow multi-core and quad-core support all in one shot no more running two instances or 4 instances.

No doubt Orthos developer will make Orthos run 4 cores soon, i like it better cause of the GUI interface and a few other reasons.

Anyhoo here is that Prime 95 ... link i was taking about:

This is version 25.5
