    Its not a benchmark. Its a gpu torture test (alongside msi kombuster)

    Its only good if you want to see how hot does your system get at the absolute limit

    FurMark causes the GPU to downclock more because it's more power hungry than most loads, so the card hits its power limit at lower clocks than usual.

    FurMark is also an unrealistic amount of stress on the GPU. It's the epitome of a torture test.

    Now that GPUs are power monitored its the easiest way of controlling such apps rather than the cludge fixes put in drivers originally.

    Holy crap 700mhz throttle on furrmark.

    Do they have any firestrike or demanding games on the clockspeeds? Since furmark is quite the dramatic torture test.
