Default we should not rely on Wikipedia for stress testing how-tos

The downloads page tells users to check the Wikipedia article about Prime95 for more information on how to run stress tests. However, there's a problem: Wikipedia is not (among other things) a how-to guide. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipe...ntific_journal

Someone has actually already trimmed most of the details from the article. Therefore, I don't think Wikipedia is a good source for stress testing guides.

I suggest linking to this one instead: http://playtool.com/pages/prime95/prime95.html

It hasn't been updated in over 10 years but is still relevant in my opinion.

I would probably suggest pulling together all information and making our own including things like stability under SSE2 vs AVX vs AVX2 vs AVX512 which are very different things.

And it's even more complicated than that. There's also "light AVX" and "light AVX512". And then all the power transition states. AFAIK, none of these are really tested by P95. The latter in particular is something that almost all homogeneous workloads will miss.
