Artifact with Furmark
« on: May 10, 2009, 08:55:01 AM »
Hi,

I have some artifacts when I use Furmark (or any video benchmark).

My card is a Gainward HD4870 512 Mo Gold Sample.

If someone could explain me where it comes from  and how avoid it :saut:



Thanks in advance

Stefan

The product sheet talks about a "turbo mode", i.e. overclocking.
If that's enabled, try again in normal mode.

well i got rid of my 4870x2 and picked up a evga gtx 285.

when i run furmark at stock clocks i get artifacts within a min of running. temps are about 70-75C. they are small black/white rectangle boxes.

vantage runs fine, wow runs fine but the other night i left F@H on, 100% fan speed and wokeup to a rebooted PC.

think i should RMA it? or is furmark just too demanding and i should brush it off?

Ok, you have an EVGA GTX285. For some reason they run unstable at about 70C or higher. Seemst to be a general problem with the EVGA Cards. A buddy is using the manual fan control to keep the temperatures down. Some other underclock it.
Do some browsing and try to find aout more.
