What is FurMark?

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.

All benchmarks were run for 60000ms (60 seconds) and the average and minimum frame rate recorded with the following settings:

  1. 1280×1024, 0xAA
  2. 1280×1024, 8xAA
  3. 1680×1050, 8xAA

Unigine

“Heaven Benchmark is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on advanced Unigine™ engine from Unigine Corp. It reveals the enchanting magic of floating islands with a tiny village hidden in the cloudy skies. Interactive mode provides emerging experience of exploring the intricate world of steampunk.”

Feature of the benchmark include:

  • Support of DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0
  • Comprehensive use of tessellation technology
  • Advanced SSAO (screen-space ambient occlusion)
  • Volumetric cumulonimbus clouds generated by a physically accurate algorithm
  • Simulation of changing light conditions
  • Dynamic sky with light scattering
  • Interactive experience with fly/walk-through modes
  • Stereo 3D modes:
    • Anaglyph
    • Separate images
    • 3D Vision
    • iZ3D

The four settings users were as follows:

  • Low – All settings medium, no AA, 1280×1024
  • Medium – All settings max, no AA, 1280×1024
  • High – All settings max, 8xAA, 1280×1024
