Artifact Tester?

Recommended Posts

What is a good way to scan for artifacts when oc'ing the GPU/Mem? In this case, I am having trouble finding the max stable clock for my 7800GTX (evga).

 

Usually I run fine with GPU 490, but sometimes I get artifacts. It seems completely random, I'll play a game or run a benchmark while overclocked and have no artifacts, then I'll play the same game/run the same benchmark and seem to get artifacts. It doesnt seem to matter what the temperature, the max i have seen (80C Core) runs fine at one time, only to artifact running the very same app at lower temps.

Yeah, that's kinda what I had in mind too - but I thought I'd give it a shot and asked if anyone knew of anything better. Thanx Dynamite! I'll let you know if i come up with anything else (tho i doubt it).

Only problem with atitool is that I can pass it with no artifacts or deltas, yet I still notice some in Day Of Defeat Source. You are best just using the games you actually play on to work out whether it is going to artifact.

I was told, by someone a long time ago, that those test don't work, and shouldn't be relied on. I too, rely on gaming to detected artifacts.

Then again, if you read my original post, I cant rely on games for successful oc'ing. Unless one concluded that my card is not oc'eable - but that is contradictory as well.

 

Also - and I meanno offense by this - while I dont dispute the validity of the quote, being "told by someone a long time ago" is hardly the type of evidende you want to rely on.

Well the evidence is, I did use it, and it showed a bunch of artifacts when I tried a certain speed, in which I never saw any in any games on my old 9700Pro. I don't remember what program it was, but it suggested I back off the core speed, and I didn't, and the games played fine. Like I said the program is flawed and the only true test are the games itself.

Well I guess there's always the saying, you never know til you try it. Well at that time I had no clue what I was doing. Instead of taking the guy's advice I tried it out anyways. As it turns the ATI tool, wasn't accurate as he stated. This was with my old 9700pro. After that I always tried out all my ocing on games. I was at one point a mmorpg junkie playing 8hr+ a day on Dark Age of Camelot. That was good for testing my oc since that was pretty much all I played. This was 3 years ago, I have never used ATI tool again. Maybe they made improvements to it, but I'm not using it again.
