Futuremark Adds stress test to 3DMark




Futuremark has stress test functionality added to the paid versions of its benchmark tool 3DMark. The new feature takes a certain time loops from existing benchmarks and provides a stability survey afterwards.

Futuremark has the stress test added to the Advanced and Professional Edition of 3DMark. There are four tests that were added on the basis of the benchmarks Sky Diver, Fire Strike Fire Strike Fire Strike Extreme and Ultra. Each test takes a continuous course of the images.

At the Advanced Edition runs over twenty times, which equals about ten minutes. According to Futuremark this is usually sufficient to cause stability problems to light. At the Professional Edition of 3DMark, users themselves set the number of loops, at least two to five thousand.

After completion of the test, the software generates a report stability, the Frame Rate Stability-score. To pass the test must process a system stable at least 97 percent of the loops.

According to Futuremark takes more than two thirds of its users 3DMark though to make sure their system is stabilized at about clocks. The half would use the software to test the cooling performance. Many users use alternative tools like FurMark and Prime95 to stress test their GPU CPU respectively.
