ATI makes Furmark run slower

Posted on Friday, August 29 2008 @ 15:50:38 CEST by

Expreview found out AMD has "optimized" its Catalyst 8.8 driver to make Furmark run slower. Apparently the chip maker did this to prevent overheating as this benchmark can get Radeon HD 4800 series graphics cards really hot.
Just like Kazarang said, when we renamed Furmark.exe, and benchmark result return to normal status, default benchmark numbers raises from 2329 to 4361, core temperature and power consumption also raises.

Whats more, we tried rename Quake War’s executable to furmark, and saw performance drop from 141.3FPS to 93.7FPS.
More details and pics over here.
