EVGA Readies Stress Testing and Benchmark Application

EVGA is preparing a new software that tests the stability of the overclocking (as a stress-testing program), and a benchmark program rolled into one. The yet to be named software is another of EVGA's fleet of software the company has developed, as value added features for its graphics cards and motherboards. The software has two components: an artifacts scanner, and a benchmark. It involves rendering a high vertex 3D object which stresses the graphics card, similar to applications such as GPUTool or the classic ATI Tool. It will be out soon.

W1zzard needs a department full of programmers so he can get ATITool working again. :(

Kind of worthless when overclocking GDDR5 since it has ECC. Do you end up with artifacts on the core with the 5 series or does it just crash like normal when pushing the core too far?

Ask him for the latest development version of GPUTool. You won't miss ATITool.

Awesome, see this is why EVGA has a lot of loyality out there with customers. They really work hard at making the tools we need to do what we love to do.

BTW - Nice Su-47 Berkut.

Beta and Dev builds typically aren't the same thing.

Dev builds change frequently and will likely have bugs that will break functionality, disabled features to isolate problems, experimental features that are unfinished and the like.

Beta builds are normally near-stable builds that haven't gone through enough testing to be released as Stable, or have certain known bugs that are acceptable or well documented.
