furmark - what is an artifact?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I keep reading how it's a glitch, but I am unable to decide if I have artifact in my Post FX furmark test.

please look at the zoomed version.

it's an ATI Radeon 5770 1 gb card.

during the furmark test, the temp goes above 90 easily (like within 10 minutes) and it does reach 100 and then I panic and close the test. It also stutters.

100 is very high, max is 105c. What's the fan like? I suggest you change the thermal paste. Your card should never get that hot with gaming though.

EDIT: I do not see any artefact though. Artefacts generally are dots, random triangles and shapes flying across the screen, textures going weird and with strange colours, etc.

that's exactly what I thought. can I RMA the card on that ground?

When you zoomed the picture, did you look at the center of the donut? I see so many dots ... the problem is I don't know if it's normal or not.

What about stuttering?

That temp is high, but I see no artifacts either.
