FurMark - VGA stress test / burn-in test and OpenGL benchmark FurMark
GPU Stress Test
OpenGL Benchmark


FurMark 1.15.1 WinXP / Vista / Win7

Previous versions:

The forum for scores or bug report, is here: GPU tools @ oZone3D.Net Forums

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.

FurMark requires an OpenGL 2.0 compliant graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 6 (and higher), AMD/ATI Radeon 9600 (and higher), Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000 or a S3 Graphics Chrome 400 series with the latest graphics drivers.

FurMark 1.10.0

The startup interface allows you to tweak the benchmark features such as:

  • Benchmark mode or stability / burn-in test mode (for overclockers)
  • GPU temperature monitoring and recording in a file
  • Fullscreen or windowed for each type of run mode
  • Window size selection (standard or custom)
  • MSAA samples selection
FurMark 1.10.0

The interface is available in several languages (english, french, chinese, etc.). The complete list is available here: FurMark Interface Translations @ oZone3D.Net Forums.

If you want to translate the interface in another language, feel free to send the translated file (see gui-english.xml in FurMark's folder for an example) at jegx AT

You can also validate the score online: just click on [Submit]. This action sends score data to the oZone3D.Net server and you get in return a validation ID that allows an online checking of the score. The scores webpage is here:

FurMark Scores @ oZone3D.Net.

To check a score, just pass the validation ID to the furmark_score_190.php page:

Only presets (preset:1080 and preset:720) allow to submit a score online.

At the end of the benchmark, just read the number of points in the result dialog box. The point-based score is simple: it's the number of frames that have been displayed during the benchmark. Thus the higher the score, the more powerful the graphics system.

FurMark 1.9.0

Command Line Parameters

FurMark 1.4.0 introduces command line parameters to control how FurMark is launched. For more information about these parameters see: Know FurMark’s Command Line Parameters.

The following command line starts FurMark with benchmark's default parameters:

C:\{FurMark Directory}>start FurMark.exe /run_mode=1 /max_time=60000
/width=1280 /height=1024 /msaa=0 /nogui /fullscreen

Burn-in and Xtrem Burn-in

The Burn-in mode is a mode where the workload of GPU is maximal. In this mode, the donut is displayed in front side which offers the largest surface. In this mode, the GPU quickly becomes very hot:
