FurMark is a small OpenGL benchmark focused on fur rendering. The rendering algorithm is highly multipass (100 passes) and each pass (or layer) uses a GLSL (OpenGL Shading Language) vertex / pixel shader to make the hairs finer and finer. To increase the fur realism, two dynamic lights are used for self shadowing. The benchmark offers several options allowing the user to tweak the rendering: fullscreen / windowed mode, MSAA selection, window size, duration. The benchmark also includes a GPU Burner mode (stability test).

This benchmark requires an OpenGL 2.0 compliant graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 5/6/7/8 (and higher), AMD/ATI Radeon 9600 (and higher) or a S3 Graphics Chrome 400 series with the latest graphics drivers.

The startup interface allows you to tweak the benchmark features such as:

Benchmark mode or stability test mode (for overclockers)
Fullscreen or windowed for each type of run mode
Window size selection (standard or custom)
MSAA samples selection
Benchmarking parameters: time based or frames based
Contest Mode

The default benchmark settings are: Fullscreen, MSAA None, 1280x1204, duration 1 minute. At the end of the benchmark, just read the o3Marks score in the result dialog box. The o3Mark score is simple: it's the number of frames that have been displayed during the benchmark. Thus the higher the score, the more powerful the graphics system is.

Command Line Parameters
FurMark 1.4.0 introduces command line parameters to control how FurMark is launched. Here is the list of available parameters:

/nogui : does not display the startup GUI.
/nomenubar : does not display the menu bar.
/noscore: does not display the final score box
/fullscreen: starts FurMark in fullscreen mode
/width : specifies the screen width - Default: 1280
/height : specifies the screen height - Default: 1024
/msaa : specifies the MSAA level - Default: 0
/run_mode : specifies the run mode: 1 for benchmark, and 2 for stability test - Default: 1
/contest_mode : 1 to enable the contest mode or 0 to disable it - Default: 0
/max_time : specifies the benchmark max time (run_mode=1) in milliseconds - Default: 60000
/max_frames : specifies the benchmark max number of frames (run_mode=1) - Default: -1
/app_process_priority : specifies FurMark process priority - Default: 32 (NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS) - See Win32 API for possible values.
/app_cpu_affinity : specifies FurMark main thread CPU affinity - Default: 1 (first CPU core)
/rendering_cpu_affinity : specifies FurMark rendering thread CPU affinity - Default: 2 (second CPU core).

Xtreme Burning is a mode where the workload of GPU is maximal. In this mode, the donut is fixe and is displayed in front side which offers the largest surface. In this mode, the GPU core quickly becomes very hot:

The Xtreme Burning mode can be started in command line or directly by launching the file start-Xtreme-Burning.bat. This mode is perfect for testing your new overclocking parameters.
