Runs DX-10 if your GPU doesn't run DX-11. Good test for your video. The fourth (final) test is the most taxing, and will heat up your GPU as much as any stress test.

[quote]NVIDIA Hair Direct3D 11 Tech Demo

Real-time Hair Rendering on the GPU

Simulating and rendering realistic hair with tens of thousands of strands is something that until recently was prohibitively expensive for real-time use.

In this demo we show to render realistic hair with high geometric complexity in real-time on the GPU. Amongst cover topics including efficient creation and rendering of high amounts of geometry for hair (essential for creating realistic hair especially when in motion), shading, self-shadowing, level of detail, and important performance optimizations. We also talk about how to use next-generation hardware tessellation to make creating and rendering hair much more intuitive and efficient.[/quote]
[b]This demo is DX11 and workiong on NVIDIA DX11 class graphics cards only.[/b]

The Last Remnant was the Square Enix bench released prior to the current Final Fantasy XIV bench. I use it because it works well with SLIAA.

The original post is clipped from a response to a request for common benches and stresses in Jesse's Prolimatech thread. It wasn't meant to be all-inclusive for a couple of reasons. The list was taken from those I use on [i]my[/i] system, which right now does not cover DX-11 or tessellation benches extensively because I don't have the hardware yet. Other tools, such as FurMark or the [url="http://www.evga.com/articles/00530/"]eVGA OC Scanner[/url], weren't included because of personal preferences such as O.C.C.T, and the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Prypriat bench because they stress the GPU to a greater extent (O.C.C.T., for example, drives the GPU temps to the top in very short order as opposed to several minutes on the others while S: CoP does so in more of a real gaming environment). Nor did I include things like the Crysis Benchmark Tool because of its depenedency on both the tool and either the game or its demo, but running it in x64 DX-10 at in-game 16xQ will definitely tell the tale on your GPU/PCIe/system RAM interaction.

Jeese's move to make this a stand-alone topic is a good move. If you want to increase its value as such, feel free to not only suggest things like [url="http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/"]FurMark: Hot Like Hell[/url], but if you do it would help if you go beyond a mere suggestion to the inclusion of the appropriate link along with it. Same with link corrections and comments on heat, usefulness, and all that...

I can't compare either BFB2 or its effects on an ATI - had to wait all the way until last week when S: CoP bottomed out at $20 to get the full game. But ATI isn't as adept at straight DX-10 as it is 10.1 because of its architecture (10.1 is only single-pass processing, and was put out by MS simply because of ATI's differences at the time).

Nor do I normally monitor temps on a full-time basis. S: CoP is one of those benches like the CBT in x64 DX-10 at 16xAA where I just try to get through it successfully, and the fourth stage definitely kicks up the fans. It's the only gaming bench I have that does, and my cards' BIOSs are set to hit 100% by 82C. Although it's a subjective measure, I can say if they're not at 100% they sure sound like it.

But I don't run monitoring apps at all unless I perceive a problem that needs investigating. I'm just not one of those folks that need to know temps, fan speeds, GPU usage per engine, VRAM usage, voltages, etc., etc., every moment of operation. I tend to test for those types of figures only when I need to, otherwise my background apps are kept to a minimum so the apps that are my focus have the system's resources to themselves, unimpeded and without conflict. I'll run a monitor on this bench for you shortly, and afterwards return to edit the info into this response (at the bottom) since you've asked for it specifically...

I tend to test for those types of figures only when I need to, otherwise my background apps are kept to a minimum so the apps that are my focus have the system's resources to themselves, unimpeded and without conflict. I'll run a monitor on this bench for you shortly, and afterwards return to edit the info into this response (at the bottom) since you've asked for it specifically...

I can't compare either BFB2 or its effects on an ATI - had to wait all the way until last week when S: CoP bottomed out at $20 to get the full game. But ATI isn't as adept at straight DX-10 as it is 10.1 because of its architecture (10.1 is only single-pass processing, and was put out by MS simply because of ATI's differences at the time).

Nor do I normally monitor temps on a full-time basis. S: CoP is one of those benches like the CBT in x64 DX-10 at 16xAA where I just try to get through it successfully, and the fourth stage definitely kicks up the fans. It's the only gaming bench I have that does, and my cards' BIOSs are set to hit 100% by 82C. Although it's a subjective measure, I can say if they're not at 100% they sure sound like it.

But I don't run monitoring apps at all unless I perceive a problem that needs investigating. I'm just not one of those folks that need to know temps, fan speeds, GPU usage per engine, VRAM usage, voltages, etc., etc., every moment of operation. I tend to test for those types of figures only when I need to, otherwise my background apps are kept to a minimum so the apps that are my focus have the system's resources to themselves, unimpeded and without conflict.

Thank you Jaffa, it is much appreciated.

Decided to put this into a new response instead. The new driver (258.96) has changed the behavior a bit, especially the frame rates. Where the bench used to race out to almost twice the speeds you'll see below, it's more "evened-out" now with a tighter cluster around the average for smoother play.

I had to use Everest to get the CPU speed to show since I was using the hardware monitor for the temps and CPU-Z won't run properly when HWI is already active. But now I can give you a better handle on the response, and I'm glad you made me look at it with the new driver. The bench not only runs smoother now even w/o VSync enabled, but a few degrees cooler as well. With 16x AF, Transparency SS and High Quality texture filters enabled in the driver, now only one of the GPUs reaches 100% fans - the other two cards only kick up to between 80-85% fans at those temps...

Come to think of it, my new RAM may have a little to do with it as well. Up until a week ago, I could only run 1200 MHz at this speed. The response of this RAM at 2000 MHz is much more capable of carrying the load when the cards' VRAM becomes saturated and must turn to the system RAM through the PCIe for help...

Precision, GPU Voltage Tool and OC Scanner already work on my PNYs as well as my eVGAs, but I can't vouche for any of the [i]500-series[/i]. Would these be the cards to which you refer?...
