quite rare artifacting

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a msi gx660 notebook with ati radeon hd5870 mobility card (not overclocked). The thing is that while playing "assassins creed: brotherhood" sometime I see some artifacting. Its very occasional (approximately 1 time in an hour). The temperatures do not exceed 72C. Im just worried if my card defective because im gonna go abroad soon and wont be able to contact warranty if something go wrong.
P.s. I run furmark for 20 minutes and the temperature went to 80C but i didnt see noticible glitches alough i afcourse didnt watch it for whole 20 minutes.

how old is it ?
you should keep the laptop cool though
tis not rare for artifacting through games sometimes your settings are just to much for the card to handle lower the settings down some and you should be good to go
like quality settings anti aliasing and such
i dont play assasins creed though so dont know the settings menu that well

the computer is quite new ~1 month old. The temperatures which ~70C is considered very low to a notebook while gaming so that can't be it. The settings are all maxed out except anti-aliasing and reaching average of 32 fps. The thing is that i cant just go to a warranty and say that sometimes i get artifact in one our, sometimes i dont. They will think i'm paranoic. I just wondering if it normal to get that time to time or it is definetly something wrong physicaly with the card?

Speaking from experience, rare artifacting leads to frequent artifacting, which leads to a dead card. Granted, I was playing on a desktop with cards that ran pretty damn hot (78c-90c)
