Default Re: How can Orthos run for an hour if Prim95 fails after a minute?

Orthos just doesn't work for quads yet. However, it's fine on duals.

Orthos isn't a different program, just doesn't use the latest build of Prime that can run 4 threads - Orthos is just a gui lol, not a different app.

Stress Prime 2004 is a better, I hope, GUI interface to Prime95's Torture Test. Thanks go to the Prime95 people for providing the Prime95 source code (version 24.14).
