What particular digital activity can you name, that generates the highest prolonged use - and thus the heat - of either the CPU or the CPU and GPU both?

Well, gaming with a recent game at ultra graphics settings! ;)

I recently tried some Minecraft shadder (optifine) that made the geme look so real... it's awesome!
I was like, bah it's Minecraft, I have a good system, let's put Extreme settings.
The game then proceeded to load and display at 5 FPS, but, everything looked "real", water too.
Pretty shure it's GPU vesus CPU at something around 85% versus 15% though, hehe!

I was pretty sure someone would mention high-end gaming, but I would actually ask whether it is a universal solution, meaning, can you really even launch a high-end game on a low-end system without simply getting an error msg right off the bat? Many times often the game would also simply crash if the machine does not meet the requirements for higher-end settings if applied. Eventually, it could overburden the system, but still the available resources may actually remain idle.

What about things that work regardless of the hardware?

What I know of, is participation in cloud computing, such as 'Berkeley Open Infrastructure Network Computing'. Had participated for a few years myself. The application is written to use any resources available, both in CPU and GPU. Another case, dynamic fractal rendering in fine quality. It is a more abstract example, since probably this would work better with some dedicated software basing on set alghoritm, but for an example, try generating a Mandelbrot fractal even in Pinta, set quality high, factor low and just keep changing the zoom. Fractals, ideally, should perpetually zoom in, live. Perhaps advanced video editing as well?

Back in the day (LOL) overclocking the CPU was what the cool kids used to do...
Fine tuning, hoping that the Fan would keep it cool enuff to go buck wild and turn it all the way up... :)

Did it a few times.. on the Anthlon's (if I recall)

Oops, Did I date myself???

@firenice03, not that long ago I used to speed up my weak GPU by 20% in clocking, yet having found the 'performance mode' thing on Ubuntu, I find no need to any longer, for the basic usage.

Well... for the GPU, when you install Wine, you can run a small app called FurMark in "burn" mode.
I use version 1.8.5 since it's the most "retro" compatible with older GPU's because of the OpenGL version.
 
From what I'v seen all recent GPU related apps use the nVidia "CUDA" artchitecture or OpenCL / Vulkan.
Since CUDA started with the GeForce GT 430, if you have older cards then this, you'll have to use OpenGL.

CPU wise, you'll have to use another app though since, maybe in parallel. ;)

Did this for the hell of it just to see if it would really happen and it sure did.



Destructive yes it was.
Interesting yes it was.
Yes it was a lot of fun.

The good old days of computers.

@'The Repairman', nice job! Uh, I guess. Nowadays, such thing would rather not happen, would it?

LOL... I never pushed it THAT far, but yeah...


@'The Repairman', nice job! Uh, I guess. Nowadays, such thing would rather not happen, would it?

I would want to hope most "newer/modern" would have some type of Thermal throttling or the system would shutdown if it reached a close to critical temp.

Anything is possible and nothing is bullet proof although todays processors will throttle down and shut off preventing self destruction when excessive temperatures are reached.

Yeah, in the day, using a computer was a dangerous thing and we didn't ride with no bicycle helmet either! ;)

I remember when someone showed me that video eons ago when it came out.
AMD started incorporating thermal shut down in their CPUs right after that ;)

I was curious so searched for the original article...
https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/hot-spot,365-4.htmlThere wasnt any YouTube then... woah!
