The Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool help document
Linux* version of IPDT
The Linux version of the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool (IPDT) is compatible with the following operating systems:
Fedora* revision 15, 32-bit.
Download Linux version of IPDT, please click here.
Please note, the Linux IPDT download site does not have the latest Linux builds that match the Windows* IPDT releases that are currently posted. The Fedora* Linux images are based on Fedora* 15, which may or may not work with new platforms. Intel is working on a Fedora* 17 build IPDT, we will post in on the Linux IPDT download site when it is ready.
The purpose of the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool is to verify the functionality of an Intel® Microprocessor. The diagnostic checks for brand identification, verifies the processor operating frequency, tests specific processor features and performs a stress test on the processor.
The diagnostic can be configured to execute in one of two modes, presence test mode or verification mode. Additionally, it can be configured to enable (run) or disable (skip) individual default configurations that are used for this mode of operation.
Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool test system requirements
The Intel processor diagnostic tool is compatible with multiprocessor systems.
Motherboard & processor
It is essential that the motherboard you use to test your processor is fully compatible with your Intel processor. Consult your motherboard manufacturer's support to ensure the motherboard supports your processor. If you are using an Intel motherboard please use this utility: Intel® Processors and Boards Compatibility Tool.
It is essential that the motherboard BIOS is at the minimum BIOS revision specified to support your Intel processor. Consult your motherboard manufacturer's support to ensure the BIOS revision is at the correct revision.
IPDT is only compatible with motherboards built using Intel® 32-bit Architecture.
Over-Clocking should be disabled while running Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool.
Some power management features (e.g. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® technology) throttle or reduce the operating frequency of components within the system. These types of power management features may result in very low tested frequency results. This does not mean that the processor is operating at degraded performance levels. It means that the enabled power management feature is optimizing the efficiency of the processor, either to save power or reduce heat within the system.
We recommend you disable any power management features such as Intel SpeedStep® technology and configure your system to its optimal power management settings, when running Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool. For instructions on how to disable these power management features, please contact your system manufacturer.
The 64-bit Windows version of the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool is compatible with the following operating systems:
- Windows XP* SP3
- Windows Server 2003* SP2

Also, the following software must be installed:
Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for mobile or Intel® HD Graphics for new 2D rotation test
Microsoft® Visual C++ 2010 (x86) Runtime Libraries.*
Windows® Installer 3.1 Redistributable (v2).*
Microsoft® .NET Framework Version 4.0 Redistributable Package (x64).*
Java Runtime Environment.*
If your Intel® Processor supports AVX, your operating system will also need to support AVX in order to run IPDT AVX test.
Operating system minimum requirements for running IPDT AVX test:
Linux: supported since kernel version 2.6.30, released on June 9, 2009
Microsoft Windows: supported in Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. Hotfix 2517374 available for non-SP1 version of Windows Server 2008 R2.
