    @zankar sweat, like max out the CPU and GPU so hard with maybe some ML task, it starts to lock up.

    I did run Android Studio and Gradle.... No noticeable lag...

    But yes lots of swag features I guess that I didn't expect.

    You want to make any machine sweat, try running a render of a huge scene, say, via Blender. Guaranteed to make any hardware cry.

    @RememberMe is there one prebuilt cuz I don't create CG animation, can't draw...

    @billgates you can go to Blender's website and get several demo files

    @RememberMe wow..... It started lagging when I pressed play animation. But it's that the right one or is it like Fat forward preview button.

    Now I clicked file-render animation. Not sure what it's doing but CPU go up but not lagging.

    But why is it using CPU not GPU?

    @billgates you have to tell it to use CUDA, it should be there in the render settings (somewhere around the Render button on the right side, just tell it to use GPU Compute/CUDA instead of CPU)

    OpenMP + CUDA if you want to go full load

    @Fjord I give up... Can't figure out Blend and not with the time. Just gonna go with bench marks and testing some games.

    I tried switching to CUDA, even slower... But PassMark says GPU beats 99% of others...

    CUDA kit comes with benchmark tools I'm pretty sure about it. Also if you enable double precision, you'll notice a big performance drop-down

    @billgates

    RememberMe mentioned render settings, I only mentioned OpenMP+CUDA
