Geeks3D's GPU Tools / Re: FurMark 1.19.1 released
« Last post by jesselin68 on November 07, 2017, 01:45:45 PM »
Hi JeGX,

Sorry to bother you. I have a question about Furmark.
Could you please give me some suggestions if you are free.

The FPS and GPU's usage in Furmark will drop down to 104 and 65%(from 140 fps and 99% usage)
if I run another CPU stress test together.(CPU burner,AIDA64 or Prime95)
That weird thing is it will come back to normal if I uncheck and check again the item how many CPUs to be allowed to run Furmark.
in the device manager.(settings in detail, please refer to the steps below)
It is weird because I didn't change anything and just checked and unchecked the item(CPU) in the affinity of device manager.

Here's the problem in detail.

I have a laptop with i7-8700K CPU, Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card and windows 10.
The Furmark v1.19.1.0 will show me a 140 FPS and a 99% of GPU usage after running stress test.
After I ran a CPU stress test together as the GPU burner bulid-in Furmark app.(or Prime95)
The FPS and GPU usage will immediately drop down to 108 FPS and 65% of GPU usage.
In the meantime, No any limit reasons were found in Furmak.
But it will come back to normal as running Furmark alone if I reset the affinity(CPU) in the device manager.

I took a video for that, please have a look on it.

My question is:

Why the FPS and Usage in Furmark will come back to normal when I just did the following steps?

1.Right-click on the Windows taskbar and launch Task Manager.
2.Then switch over to the details tab.
3.Find the "Furmark app" in the list, right-click on it and choose Set affinity from the context menu.
4.Just uncheck the "all processors" item(how many CPUs to be allowed to run Furmark)
5.Check the "all processors" item againg
6.Press "OK" button to apply.
7.Then, you can see the FPS and Usage come back to normal as before.

I know if I end the CPU stress test, the FurMark will come back to normal, too.
But I am wondering why it will also work when I just reset the affinity(CPU) in the device manager.
Is it a bug in Furmark? What do you think about that.
That problem will let system not get the maximum loadings when I run a combined test(CPU and GPU)
and forget to set the affinity(CPU) for Furmark.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.


A new update of FurMark is available:

Version - 2017-10-30
+ added support of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti.
+ added support of AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 and Vega 56.
+ added support of AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition.
! updated: GPU Shark and GPU-Z 2.40
