HARDWARE --
Memtest86+ v6.0 has been released for this open-source system memory (RAM) testing utility. Memtest86+ v6.0 is the first major release of this program in nearly a decade and comes as a complete rewrite to better deal with modern hardware.

Memtest86+ 6.0 as part of the rewrite now features proper UEFI support, the ability to stress the latest AMD and Intel platforms with both DDR4 and DDR5 memory module support, support for up to 256 CPU cores, and many other enhancements over the prior nine year old release.

Memtest86+ 6.0 can be downloaded in the form of Linux ISOs or a Windows USB installer. Memtest86+ is available from memtest.org. At least back in the day this was a wonderful program for testing system memory if fearing faulty DDR DIMMs or other memory related stability concerns.
