NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 SLI versus ATI Radeon HD 5770 CrossFireWed, Sep 29, 2010 - 12:00 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 is a benchmark that neither AMD nor NVIDIA want us to use, but we use it anyway since they tell us not to run it. This site wouldn’t be called Legit Reviews if we drank all the Kool-Aid that these companies tell us on a daily basis. Even though neither company wants us to run this benchmark we saw some of the best scaling of any of the nine tests that we have run so far! NVIDIA scaled 97% on SLI and ATI wasn’t too far behind at 95% on CrossFire at a resolution of 1920×1200!
