1 Flares 1 Flares ×

JeGX from Geeks.3d just emailed to let us know that a new version of the great stress test Furmark has been released, taking it to 1.9.0.

From his site:

First thing, FurMark is still an OpenGL 2.0 GPU stress test. That means all available GPUs can be tested with FurMark including:
- NVIDIA GeForce 6 to latest GeForce GTX 500
- AMD Radeon HD 2000 to latest Radeon HD 6000
- Intel Sandy Bridge GPUs HD 2000 / HD 3000
- S3 Graphics Chrome 400, 500
- and all other models I forget.

furmark 19 Furmark 1.9.0 released   with even heavier GPU load

The graphics workload is heavier than in FurMark 1.8.2 to follow the GPU power processing of recent graphics cards. For example, a GTX 480 has a score of 6478 points (108FPS) in FurMark 1.8.2 in 1920×1080 while in FurMark 1.9.0 the score of the same card is only 1769 points (29FPS).

FurMark 1.9.0 adds a dynamic background instead of an static image. But don’t panic, this is an option, and if you want to find your favorite dragon, just uncheck the dynamic background. I also added a mode with two interlaced furry torus and a moving camera.

To make benchmark process simpler, there are now two presets that allow to submit an online score: Preset:1080 and Preset:720. Just click on a preset button and the benchmark starts with predefined settings:

  • Preset:1080 : 1920×1080 fullscreen, no AA, Post FX disabled, dynamic background, burn-in enabled.
  • Preset:720 : 1280×720 fullscreen, no AA, Post FX disabled, dynamic background, burn-in enabled.

More information on the software and a download link is available over here.
