    Hello,
    AVX instructions cause 4770k and haswell chips to spike in voltage when using adaptive vcore. This is a problem for overclocking as the voltage spike adds tremendous heat load and can render the system unstable.
    My question is, besides the latest versions of prime95 and other specific cpu benchmarking programs like LINX, does any actual software ‘in the wild’ actually use AVX instructions?
    If so, could one theoretically have some sort of background script running in their webpage, that utilises the instructions and therefore causes these vulnerable systems to overvolt and overheat?

    I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
