2 – MSI Kombustor Release Highlights

MSI Kombustor v3.5.2 improves GPU memory stress test module on NVIDIA graphics cards (the GPU memory is correctly allocated) and tests up to 12GB are available (not tested with 12GB of VRAM so let me know if it works or not).

PhysX 3 fluid simulation demo have been improved with better simulation parameters (the simulation is more stable).

    It reports my 290X as a 390X during stress test.

    Hii i am a big fan of this page for a few years now.
    i just move from win 7 to win 10 64 bits and before my total points in the 1 million parts was 24000 points more or less but yesterday i installed and run the kombustor and my for my surprise i just get 8000 points with 2 780 oc on sli so i believe something wrong is happening or maybe the kombustor its not ready for win 10 64 bits build 10240 just want to let you know.

  • zeuz

    i really appreciate, i will be around thanks

  • zeuz

    well looks like you guys doesn’t find what is the problem with this kombustor , just an up date I’m using Nvidia 355.82 and the same bug is present in sli I cant pass 130fps and only 8000 points, not matter what driver I use, but I’m pretty sure is something with windows 10 64 bits could be your kombustor is not ready for win 10.

    hey, great work i have used this religiously as my stress testing software for years now so i thought id let you know i found a bug. recently upgraded pc, now running win 10 64 bit and have 2 x hd7970 in crossfire, just a history,
    launches UI and is navigable but when i choose a test it freezes once the loading bar is full (on any test) and i have to end process.

  • Basil Peace

    What could be wrong if the app doesn’t run? It’s being silly closed within 1 second.

  • Coderx7

    Can I use this with Asus graphics card as well or is it just MSI exclusive ?

  • Potato

    I cant open it? :3 im on windows 10 64bit

  • Daniel

    i cant start the application

  • Wellington Torrejais da Silva

    Thanks!!!

  • Alex

    Hi, it keeps testing my Intel card and not my nvidia card and I cant seem to fix this. Any idea why? Cheers.

    64 bit version keeps vsync-60fps %90 of tests. Rarely it unlocks higher fps (such as 180 fps) and that keeps gpu usage at %97
