Why isn't this app updated? We need a good, free competitor to HCI Design MemTest.

I have a vision of making this multi-process, so it can more easily allocate memory.

Besides that, what other changes would you like to see?

How easy is it to move the OS around in memory so near all the RAM can be tested?

I am going to run some mem testing on my new system, whilst its in testing phase, will try out this software didnt realise it was TPU dev'd.

Would love it being multi process.

Thought it was multi-threaded, but we definitely need that, and for it to be as strenuous as possible on RAM.

A long time since I've used it, but I do recall being unable to complete, or even begin, the test due to a memory allocation error.

Thanks for your well-made software and website, by the way.

because there is OCCT, testmem5 and y-cruncher with tons of presets.
it's cool but i wouldn't see this software as a priority when there is already enough on the market.

Do apps like this also stress the CPU concurrently? I know there's load on the memory controller.

I like OCCT because it has a stress test that stresses the whole system, leading to errors thrown, often by system load pushing single components past temperature thresholds, that wouldn't happen if it was a single component test.

I know it's possible to just run a different stress test tool at the same time, but I've had issues with crashing or freezing once memory tests are starting if I run a different app and I would imagine there could be some conflict if both are trying to access memory.
because there is OCCT, testmem5 and y-cruncher with tons of presets.

It would be super cool to have the updated version be able to be run off a bootable memory stick, so the memory can be tested without the OS running.

I don't trust Russian apps without English documentation (or proper website, it would seem) that require admin privileges (i.e., TestMem5). OCCT is a good suite, but a bit clunky if you have a single specific use. I'm not familiar with y-cruncher, but it doesn't seem to be a simple, easy to use utility.

I want a GPU-Z or CPU-Z of memory stressing, which MemTest64 basically is, but I think it needs to be updated. MemTestPro by HCI Design probably fits that description, but it's not free. Their free MemTest is too handicapped to be immediately useful.

Except for the kernel stuff, almost everything can be paged out (assuming you have a pagefile). This is what causes the massive slowdowns with high memory size settings

Thought it was multi-threaded
It is .. the problem is allocating 438956743985643 MB of memory in a single process is a little difficult sometimes

with tons of presets.
Do these actually matter? Seems most people use the same presets .. or do you like the ability to customize the tests?

Some of the presets seem to have a lot more success finding errors, enthusiasts swear by and share certain TM5 presets for example.

y-cruncher VST is basically the best IMC stability test i've seen especially on Intel, FFT is pretty fast in finding ram instability.
Testmem5 is often a lot faster than Memtest.

it's a lot more versatile than just memtest.
