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: FurMark is now able to get detailed data from GPU-Z (if GPU-Z is
running). In both Stability Test mode,
GPU-Z is used to display additional information (GPU core clock, memory
clock, GPU temperature and power consumption).
In Benchmarking mode, GPU-Z is used to retrieve GPU core clock, memory
clock, VDDC and VDDC current. Some data (like
VDDC and VDDC current) is only available on some graphics cards (like the
GeForce GTX 280).
New: In Benchmarking mode, you can now send your score to your Twitter
account (this gadget is experimental).
New: the main GUI is now always available so you can fire up several
tests without the need to start again the application.
New: main GUI (graphical user interface) settings are now saved and are
re-used. Thanks to W1zzard for the
New: in Stability Test mode, each GPU has now its own temperature graph.
New: in Stability Test mode, you can enable/disable the display of
information the I key.
New: in Stability Test mode, you can enable/disable the fur rendering
with the SPACE key. Thanks to David
Legrand for the idea.
New: added new standard resolutions: 800×600 and 1920×1080.
New: added new interface translations:

- bulgarian (thanks to fellix)
- polish (thanks to rogalik)
- slovak (thanks to ufo and Peter H.)
- spanish (thanks to tech4pcs)
