Best Video card stress test tool?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Well, what is the best GPU stress test software? I have found a lot of stuff for CPU's, but not much for video cards.

The best i can come up with is playing Crysis or using ATi Tool (the scan for artifacts feature).

ATI Tool is probably the best there is. I've never seen anything else ever stress my GPU as much as ATI Tool does.

Very sorry puscifer, i have to disagree even tho i like ati tool.

Furmark gives off the most heat and uses more bandwidth ... i'll find a link.

It kicks ATI tools butt....

http://www.ozone3d.net/smf/index.php?topic=1440.0

I still use ati tool from time to time....
cuz the yellow blocks are really easy to tell its not good.

Playing crysis is very good to tell if your okay also.
I can be okay in ati tool.... once i play crysis my system locks up and fails....
This is a good indication ati tool doesnt stress to the max.

Correct Link:

yes furmark is great on heating up the card and really throwing the mud in it's face to see if it'll hold its composure. However, if you have recent ati drivers you need to rename the exe to something different. I just use something like ut3.exe or namethatgame.exe

Furmark will stress it like a mother in law at a rock concert.
