Does anybody know of any programs that can really test my MacBook's performance?

    I have a rMBP. I got the late 2013 model, and it has 2.6/8/256

    I've never really gotten to test it's performance because all I use it for is mail, Beats 1, facetime audio, iMessages, calendar, web browsing, notes, pages, and occasionally Google Earth. I also use Time Machine.

    I was wondering, does anyone know any programs or software that are processor and RAM intensive that can really test the machine's performance?

    Short of curiosity why bother? I get pushing a "big" bike past 300KPH or a fast Porsche on the Autobahn, as there`s a real payoff, watching a notebook crunch numbers not so much...

    I'm not trying to benchmark or anything.

    Was just wondering of any programs that can push it to the limit.

    I suppose 4K videos would be a good way to see how my Mac performs right?

    Ah OK, I'm not sure of your aptitude with software so let's start off with something simple.

    Handbrake is a video transcoder that will max out every single one of your cores on the CPU. It will bring the heat, figuratively and literally. :)
