How to test Intel® Processor
Once installed, the IPDT starts testing the processor using the default configuration. Two windows might appear to show the test is in progress.
When IPDT completes, the Testing Status will display either a PASS or FAIL.
Alternatively, you can open or save the test results file every time after the test run by clicking on file > view results file, file, then, save as to any location you specify.

Configuring test for IPDT
You can configure the tool, by going to tools > config > Edit. You will get a note about the effect of changing iPDT parameters from the default configuration. The results and config become editable. Click on start to begin the test.

Pre-set Configuration of IPDT
To run IPDT from preset configuration go to tools > config > preset. You have three preset choices:
  • Quick Test: Sets all IPDT features to disabled. Run Genuine Intel, Brand String and Frequency Test
  • Functional Test: Enables all IPDT features and runs IPDT stress test for minutes. This is the default IPDT setting
  • Burn-in Test: Enables all IPDT features and runs IPDT stress test for 120 minutes. You may also turn on looping with this Burn-In setting
Note There is no Linux or macOS versions of the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool.
