How to Check if Graphics Card is Working Fine or Not


Is there any way to find out if graphics card is working fine?
I have an HD 4870 card and it seems to get really slow these days.
Particularly while navigation in 3dsmax software smooth shade mode

any guesses why?

thanks

You could use a benchmark like the uniengine benchmark and compare scores. Or use 3dmark.

try opening catalyst control center. check the graphics hardware to see the clocks are normal ie default for your chip.

run furmark and benchtest. look for artifacts, and monitor core temps using gpuz. that should give you an idea if the gpu is throttling for any reason.

^^Exactly.

Back when my 8800 GT was almost off, the temps were showing up towards the higher end. Discovered it had a cooler problem later on when I RMA'ed it.

Check the same.

Also, does your pc hang in between? As in, it just stops and you can see various coloured lines springing up while the pic is hung. Is that the case too once in a while?

In terms of artifacting, snow = GPU errors, color errors = VRAM errors.

Re: How to Check if Graphics Card is Working Fine or Not

okay guys

sorry for replying late but had been down with viral.

Sorry to say but i have zero awareness on the terms like core temperature, clocking, core temps etc. these sound alien to me. so what are the values i should look at while noting them down. because i need to know what should be the range of these values to make the card work fine.
i hope u r understanding what i am saying. I am not able to understand what values i should be monitoring

thanks

Re: How to Check if Graphics Card is Working Fine or Not

Well, first start by downloading furmark or MSI afterburner. Run the program and see the temperatures. It will show on the screen itself. For 4870 temps should range between 40 odd on idle and 80 odd on load...if its going to 90+, then you need to check if the fan on the card is dirty, or the heatsinks are dirty.
