    FurMark - GPU Stress Test

    information   Information
    Furmark is an intensive OpenGL benchmark that uses fur rendering algorithms to measure the performance of the graphics card. BSOD analysts will recommend you use Furmark to test the performance and stability of your GPU if it is suspected of causing BSODs.

    GPUs will generally fail the FurMark stress test if there is heat issues, insufficient power to the card, incorrectly seated power cables, the card is incorrectly seated or if the currently installed drivers are misbehaving, among other things.
    warning   Warning
    FurMark will put your GPU under immense stress, during this stress test the GPU temperatures will rise very quickly.
    Monitor the temperatures at all times, if the temperature continues to rise rapidly above 80C it is advised to stop the test to prevent further damage to the GPU.



    1: Download FurMark from the link below.


    2: Run the FurMark installer.

    Monitor the output display closely for artifacts. If you do experience artifacts there is a problem with the card. Monitor temperatures very closely as well, if the temperature continues to rise consistently after reaching 80C prepare to stop the test to avoid further damage being caused to the GPU.

    That's it,

    Very Nice Program I gave it a shot although I was thinking why am I doing this right now :)
    When I am not playing any games at this time the Fans on the Video card kicked in at 62c and the temp just stayed there @62

    Question: how can i run this multi-threaded?

    on my computer it seems furmark is cpu bound as it is running at 100% on only 1 core and barely making a dent in my gpu. my old ati radeon 4850 is nice and cool at max 65c

    anybody know of settings i can change to get multi-thread or another gpu stress tester that supports it ?
