FurMark is a very intensive OpenGL benchmark that uses fur rendering algorithms to measure the performance of the graphics card. Fur rendering is especially adapted to overheat the GPU and that's why FurMark is also a perfect stability and stress test tool (also called GPU burner) for the graphics card. The benchmark offers several options allowing the user to tweak the rendering: fullscreen / windowed mode, MSAA selection, window size, duration.
New: added a GPU temperature monitoring
graph in stability test mode.
New: added a checkbox to enable
post-processing effect in stability test mode.
Post-processing effect shader is loaded from the
file post-processing-fx.xml. So if you know GLSL
programming, you can customize this effect
shader. See on Geeks3D.com for a complete
New: added OpenGL 3.0 support. If OpenGL 3.0
is detected, the rendering is done via an OpenGL
