Default Re: Does Fur-mark represent how hot games will be.

Furmark is essentially Prime95 for your video card. There are very few applications that are designed to peg your processor at 100%. The same thing goes for your video card. Both programs push your hardware to its limits - the limits the hardware was designed to be able to be used at.

Will any games make your card run that hot? Unlikely, but possible. Fur-mark isn't just turning a knob on your card that says "run as hot as you can".
