Best utility for artifact scanning to date 2011

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have been testing a few lately and it seems atitool is no longer able to be used or trusted.

Seems that OCCT was the ONLY one I have found to show artifacts and errors like ATItool used to.

Anyone know of any other programs that DO show artifacts and errors on todays modern cards?

If OCCT is the only one to log artifacts, why look further? OCCT is the one that I use for this very reason. I can set it to run and leave. It keeps track of the errors (artifacts) that occur. I don't have to sit there and stare at the screen.

Yeah, I was just curious if there was something better or more out there.

Curious that there's only ONE known program that can do artifact/error scanning correctly these days?

It's a crucial tool IMO to OCing your GPU.

If you have Crysis, you can try the benchmark (CPU, or GPU). I use it whenever I'm overclocking my system. Normal integrated benchmark loops 4 times, but you can download a program (Crysis Benchmark Tool) and loop the demo 99 times. I've used the GPU benchmark to OC my 560Ti and it's been wonderful. If the card isn't stable, it will crash after 5-15 loops (usually less).

I only give my graphic card's OC settings a clean bill of health after it has done 100 loops of Crysis GPU benchmark without crashing and with consistent average FPS.

IMO a video card would require MASSIVE instability for it to crash in a game.....


I'm looking for something that will find the SLIGHTEST of instabilities / errors.

OCCT, crysis benchmark, and Metro 2033(maybe) as the benchmark is more demanding than the game itself.

OCCT and crysis bench seem to pretty much be very good at taxing the gpu for artifacts.

OCCT works great. Why look for something else if you already have something that does exactly what you want/need?

OCCT seems to be the best bet. As I've been OCing this new card, artifacts/errors will show up on OCCT sooner than any benchmark/game crashes.

You just run OCCT:GPU and slowly turn up the clocks and you'll know when you need to back down almost instantly when you go up a click.
