Ok guys, this is a bugfix release of FurMark to support OpenGL 3.0 rendering contexts with the latest ATI Catalyst 9.1.
All new features will be added shortly in FurMark 1.7.0.
– FurMark 1.6.5 *** RECOMMENDED***

Please, dear reader, post a feedback in the comments section to let me know how this patch works, especially if you have a Radeon 3k/4k with Catalyst 9.1.
Version 1.6.0, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3 and 1.6.4 do not work with Catalyst 9.1 A.I.:
– FurMark 1.6.4 –better than 1.6.3–
– FurMark 1.6.3 –should be better than 1.6.2–
– FurMark 1.6.2 –works better than 1.6.1–
– FurMark 1.6.1 –works better than 1.6.0 😉 —
FurMark 1.6.1 ChangeLog:
- Bugfix: ATI Catalyst 9.1 crash when an OpenGL 3.0 context is used. See HERE for more information about the bug.

not working for me, still crashing.
i use : Ati4850, CAT 9.1, phenom 9550..
thx for the updates anyway
What Windows? Vista or XP, 32 or 64-bit?
hey hello i try but same for me its crash again i have 4870×2 but nothing hapend please can you check what is the prioblem thanks.
i use windows XP SP3, IE 8
For me it works on 3870 and XP…
Crashes for me as well Win XP, 4870 1GB
These crashes are very strange… FurMark works fine with my Radeon HD 4850 / Cat9.1 / Win XP 32 sp2. I installed the driver only, not the CCC. I’m going to test with the CCC.
Just did a test with Cat9.1 + CCC + Win XP 32 SP3 + Radeon HD 4850. Still works fine… For those who have the crash, please be sure to have downloaded the latest FurMark in this post (version 1.6.1 – Jan 30, 2009 @ 11:16:14) and not in a download mirror somewhere else…
I have an x1900xtx, xp sp3 (italian) and catalyst 9.1.
I can’t start FurMark 1.6.1.
It says that it’s required an opengl 2.0 compliant card….
No problems with FurMark 1.5.
ye its FurMark_v1.6.1.exe
Crashest at once XP 32 SP3 with CCC, anyway I can debug the crash to give you more info?
Xain > I will look a the problem.
Zalamander > yes try to give me more information. Maybe FurMark’s log file has some interesting info…
there is the log even tho it doesnt seem to indicate any kind of problems by the looks of it.
Thanks Zalamander. The log shows an OGL 3 ctx. So I suppose you can see the main startup GUI and once you start the rendering, FurMark crashes. I have the same problem now, the driver crashes in the creation of a second ogl 3 ctx (the one used for the rendering). I feel I’ll issue a new version without ogl 3 for ATI boards.
Too bad I was searching all over the web for some kind of OGL 3.0 demo to try out if it worked on this latest catalyst this was the only place I found.
yeah I know, that’s why it’s tough for me to debug… no reliable code sample or demo…
A new version is available for test:
By default the GL 3 ctx creation is disabled. To enable GL 3 ctx, just launch the file Start-FurMark-OGL3.bat in FurMark’s folder. In stability mode, the OpenGL version is displayed near the renderer.
4870, Phenom 9850@3000mhz, Windows 7, runs like a champ….
hmm it seems that didnt solve anything, curious, still crash the same way when you try “Go!”.
used 1.6.2, XP 32-SP3, IE 7.0, 9.1catalyst, still not working, thank you for ur effort ^^
now is working !
Even with FurMark version 1.6.2, it still crashes on a 4870, on Vista (32bit) with
Cat. 9.1, as soon as I click on “go”.
The same goes for GPU Caps Viewer…and OpenGL based software like
SecondLife, as I found out today. Cat. 9.1 and OpenGL: No go!
Zalamander, Crishan and Chris > FurMark 1.6.2 still crashes with the /gl3 (Start-FurMark-OGL3.bat), right?
Xain > cool…
I don’t understand why FurMark 1.6.2 works like a charm on my Radeon HD 4850. Do you have some utilities in background (FRAPS, …) ?
I think it’s better to wait ATI Catalyst 9.1 hotfix or more simply Catalyst 9.2 (if they manage to release it before the end of February – watch out ATI, this month has only 28 days…).
Hello, my english is not so good, sorry…
I`m used 4870 with XP32 SP2, Catalyst 9.1.
FurMark 1.6.2 dont work with/without /gl3
Thanks 4 your feedback AlterMax. I must find a HD 4870 to continue my tests…
i have the same problem:
i can start FurMark 1.6.1&1.6.2, but after click on “Go” the programme hangs.
i’ve Win XP 32-bit SP3, CCC 9.1 ans ATI Radeon HD3870.
I’ve a hd 3870. Okay I’m going to start again the tests with a fresh install of winxp. There must be a reason that explains why FurMark runs on my systems with Cat9.1.
I found this thread where the author has posted an OpenGL 3.0 code sample (source + binary) and guess what? It crashes too…
@JeGx, yep ur right, same crash everytime = )
i guess it’s ati’s fault this time, but 9.1 ish definitely far better than 8.12…IMHO
My friend’s comp use this settings : phenomx4 9850+ toxic 4870 + cat 9.1 also crashing everytime = P
i wonder if it’s because i use non standard GPU cooler? ( FYI both me and my friend use Duorb an custom water cooling thermaltake GPPU cooler..)
I did some minor changes in the way OpenGL 2 / 3 rendering contexts are created. These changes are present in the very latest FurMark 1.6.3 (download in the top of the post). Let me know how this new version works…
I tested FurMark 1.6.3 on a fresh WinXP 32 SP2:
– Radeon HD 3870 + Cat9.1: OK
– GeForce 8800 GTX + Forceware 181.22: OK
– S3 Chrome 430 GT + latest drivers: OK
Chris > I don’t think the GPU cooler is the source of crash. It’s a 100% software problem (FurMark and Catalyst 9.1).
No, unfortunately, FurMark still crashes as soon as the “Go” button is clicked
and FurMark opens its’ windows: ‘the application has encountered an error and
needs to close (translated from my German Windows Vista)’
A game like Nexuiz (OpenGL.based, IIRC) plays fine, but e.g. SecondLife just crashes.
Fur mark 1.6.3 still crashes when I push “GO” button. HD4870 vista x64 catalyst 9.1
I`m used 4870 with XP32 SP2, Catalyst 9.1.
FurMark 1.6.3 also dont work.
Win XP 32-bit SP3, CCC 9.1 and ATI Radeon HD3870:
still crashes with version 1.6.3,
function at “0x6957f2c0” cannot access memory at “0x05ca1020” – cannot “read”
hii hummm still i have the same problem i download 1.6.3 and dosent work still crash i have 4870×2 cat 9.1 please chek ok thank you.
it’s unreal… what do you guys have in common to make FurMark crashing? ATI CCC particular settings? FRAPS (version?) ? GPU-Z (version?) ? RivaTuner (version?)? Blind debug is really hard…
Which version of FurMark works for everyone with Cat9.1 ? 1.4.0, 1.5.0 ?
tested 1.4.0 and 1.5.0 – crash after press on “Go!”, the same error: cannot read…
had no problems with CCC 8.12 and FurMark 1.6.0, but CCC 9.1 makes crash
with all versions of FurMark 🙁 i has no Fraps/GPU-Z/RivaTuner/Tweaker etc.
screenshot from my CCC: http://www.pycb-clan.de/bilder/ccc.jpg
i use standart CCC settings.
I`m not use FRAPS, RivaTuner or GPU-Z. I use only ATI Tray Tools(Ray Adams) tool for change speed fan. When i start my system, ATT runs, change speed fan and unload. I try FurMark 1.5.0, it`s dont work. My ATI Radeon HD4870 not overclocked.
I released a new patch (1.6.4). Since the first OpenGL 3.0 context is always correctly created (this context is used for interface) while the second ogl 3 ctx always crashes, this patch uses an ogl 2 ctx for the interface needs and creates an unique ogl 3 ctx for the rendering. Let me know how it works my friends!
Unfortunately, 1.6.4. also don`t work on my system 🙁
it’s hopeless 🙁 🙁
I think I give up for today…

FurMark Version 1.6.4 still doesn’t work. Vista x64 CCC catalyst 9.1 ATT v188.8.131.524. No overclocking. HD4870.
Thank you for the 1.6.4 fix.
It works perfectly now with ATI HD 4850 GS & CATALYST 9.1
Good job !
Thanks polux400, this is the first good news of the day 😉
hey whats up: well same for me still crash i dont now what is the reason but i will try all the up dates you make, untill this “#%”% work ok so dont give up .
Works perfectly on a HD4870 Club3D OC edition & vista x64 with cat9.1
Vista x64, 4870×2, cat 9.1, fur 1.6.4 doesn’t work ;/
Seems we are in the right direction with version 1.6.4… I will release another patch tomorrow for new tests. Thanks for all your feedbacks guys!
On Vista (32 bit), Catalyst 9.1, FRAPS not installed, GPU-Z not running, not ATT installed, 4 GB RAM (3.2 GB used) with a 4870, 512MB:
Still no go, even with FurMark 1.6.4, OR SO I THOUGHT.
I have disabled Adaptive Anti-Aliasing AND I moved the slider for Catalyst A.I. back from Advanced to Standard.
Please try these options (Adaptive Anti-Aliasing and/or Catalyst A.I. back to standard) and tell us if FurMark works again…
Suddenly, I also can Login to SecondLife again, I must have been one of the two!
Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you found the Big F****ing Bug: I enabled Catalyst A.I + Adaptive AA and now FurMark crashes on my Radeon HD 4850!
Will try to release a workaround asap…
CCC 8.12 & enabled Catalyst A.I.: 4950 o3Marks
CCC 8.12 & disebled Catalyst A.I.: 3250 o3Marks
CCC 9.1 & disabled Catalyst A.I.: 3250 o3Marks
CCC 9.1 & standard Catalyst A.I.: 2550 o3Marks (stable 43 fps all the benchmarking)
CCC 9.1 & advanced Catalyst A.I.: crash
CCC 8.12 seems to be more better, Catalyst A.I. don’t work propertly…
Yep the new version 1.6.5 is out! The bug came from Catalyst 9.1 “Human-Wanna-Be” feature: Catalyst A.I. Let me know if the workaround is robust and I will be able to officially release the new FurMark.
nice work – have no problems with/without Catalyst A.I (standard/advanced)
CCC 9.1 is a small piece better – i’ve 3520 o3Marks (3450 with CCC 8.12)
BIG thnx, the new version is work on my system
Congratulations! Now FurMark works good!
hello thats it you make it yes thank you now its work perfectly in 4870×2 now i be waiting for the new furmark 1.7 , question you fix the problem whit the performance in the catalist you now this guys (ATI) slow down the performance
and youy say change the furmark.exe to something.exe now is fix o still the problem? eny way thankyou.
hi 🙂 i found this thread while searching for a solution to stop secondlife crashing all time on my new system (hd4850, phenom 9950, vista64)
thanks for the hint on adaptive antialiasing, this solved my problem!
and since this is a benchmark site i just gave it a run … is 4963 o3Marks a good value?
Zeuz > ATI has added a FurMark detection in Catalyst and I can do nothing by code to prevent that. The only solution is to rename FurMark since this detection is based on the name FurMark. But from version 1.6.0, I’ve added a renamed version of FurMark in the intaller: etqw.exe. And by default, all shortcuts point to etqw.exe…
happy > yes 4963 is a good score for your HD 4850. You can check other scores here: FurMark Comparative Table.

Thanks for all your tests my friends!

I can’t run Furmark 1.6.5 when ATT (Ati Tray Tools) is running. Why ?
