I don't think so. ATiTool is greatly depreciated at this point. The top tests are either Furmark or Kombustor, but such tests are usually not recommended because they cause extremely high loads and could possibly damage your card. Most people set a benchmarking utility (3Dmark, unigine) to loop and watch for artifacts or crashes. Others just game on and hope for the best.

I still use it for testing video cards and OC
In many instances it detects artifacts way earlier than games

I've since made an effort to actually push my graphics card (thanks to 7 days to die, game loves fast vram it seems). I used OCCT GPU test. It does have an artifact scanner. So far so good since I found my max stable clock with OCCT...

In my experience, Atitool seems to detect them earlier than OCCT when OCing (i.e it needs less scan time to detect them) while OCCT takes longer but that was with older GPUs
It's true that OCCT is more modern, is actively developed, supports DX11, has more options, and is more likely to be more relevant with more recent video cards

I'm having a problem with OCCT not downloading. The page just refreshes every seconds. Even clicking the link it wont work. Using Google Chrome.

And is a Windows 10 insider build running on my desktop, to make things harder :)

I take back what i said about it not downloading, it must be a chrome thing. I downloaded on IE just fine.

I think I had the same issue. Instead of trying a different browser (using Chrome as well) I just downloaded it from Major Geeks.

I don't have any issues with Chrome and the official OCCT site :confused:

Out of curiosity inspired by this thread, I ran AtiTool again and it seemed to still work fine and pushed my card to it's limit. Not bad for a really old tool! Shows just how well it was written. To be fair, FurMark is much better suited for stress testing a GPU.

Why would you suggest a tool, that stresses a GPU beyond the capacity of any game? Especially for someone who may be new to overclocking like the OP is.

I didn't, they were using it on their own. I was just tinkering. But pushing a card to it's limit will show whether a card can run in stable in it's overclocked state. Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.

Thing is, it wont. When in Furmark, the card's driver wont allow the card to activate its boost clocks, as it has been known for Furmark to be a power virus, so nvidia blocked it.

ATITool, is tool old. Doubt they're blocking it. However, there a simple trick to making Furmark stress a card to it's maximum, Run it outside the "Program Files" directory and rename the EXE. Run in portable mode it doesn't get "detected" unless the NVidia driver now look at the Digital Sig.

Is there any other tool that scans for GPU artifacts, except for AtiTool?

Nice, thank you. Will it report errors like AtiTool, or do I have to stare at the animation for hours and look for "bad" pixels?
