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?

Are you trying to benchmark?

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. :)
