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 the video cards.
Benchmark Results: Furmark can really put a lot of stress on a card. As we can see from our results, the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC and the Radeon 6850 were pretty much even at both resolutions and truly weren’t that far behind the Radeon 6870.
