ASUS GeForce GTX 590 3GB Video Card ReviewThu, Mar 24, 2011 - 8:00 AM
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 was rendered in full screen mode with no AA enabled on both video cards.
Benchmark Results: Furmark had the AMD Radeon HD 6990 dominating the ASUS GeForce GTX 590, but it looks like NVIDIA crippled the driver on purpose so the card doesn’t get damaged by this benchmark.
