A new version of FurMark, the popular GPU burn-in utility, is available.
1 – Release highlights
FurMark 1.20.0 is a maintenance release and brings the support of new GPUs (NVIDIA Quadro P1000/P4000, GeForce GTX 1060 5GB, TITAN V) as well as 21/9 resolutions. GPU monitoring utilities GPU Shark and GPU-Z have been updated to their latest versions.
The affinity mask of the render thread is now set to 0 by default which means that Windows is free to run the render thread on any logical core of the CPU. In previous versions of FurMark, the render thread was forced to run on the second logical core. If you need to run FurMark render thread on a particular set of logical cores, you can launch FurMark with the following option:
where mask is a bit vector where each bit represents a logical core. For example, if mask=5, the render thread will be allowed to run on the first and third logical cores. To launch FurMark with the affinity mask of FurMark 1.19, run the following command:
FurMark 220.127.116.11 is a maintenance release and brings the support of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 16 Series. This new version of FurMark also prevents Windows from going into screen blanking or sleep mode. This allows to run FurMark for hours (or days…) no matter power saving (screen blanking or sleep mode) settings.
FurMark 18.104.22.168 is a maintenance release and brings the support of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060.
FurMark 22.214.171.124 is a maintenance release and fixes a minor bug in the GPU temperature reading on some GPUs. On those GPUs (like Radeon RX 400 series) the GPU temperature goes up so quickly at the start of the stress test that the GPU temperature spike filter detects a false spike. The GPU temperature spike filter is now disabled by default because it’s no longer useful today (the spike filter has been added in prehistoric times where spikes in temperature were there –see HERE). If you need it, you can enabled it in the startup_options.xml file (enable_gpu_temp_spike_filter and gpu_temp_spike_filter_threshold) .
FurMark 126.96.36.199 is a maintenance release and fixes a minor bug in the GPU monitoring log to file function: GPU-Z values for clock speeds and GPU temperature are now used when FurMark monitoring is incomplete like on Intel GPUs.
FurMark 188.8.131.52 is a maintenance release that brings a minimal support for high-DPI scaling (FurMark simply keeps its original size). GPU Shark and GPU-Z have been updated to their latest versions.
