is there some proven video memory testing tool for not ancient videocards, which is able test every cell, every range like Memtest for RAM?
People usually recommend to run some benchmark and wait it will not freeze, reset machine, or use eyes to hunt to artefacts.. well its possible with i would rather use something more technical.
So far im using Video Memory Stress Test https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/vide … tress_test.html, but it has some limitations like:
- * It need Windows (and Windows drivers to target card) - it running at least in WinXP+, i managed to get it run Win98, but im not sure if it working.
* As Rayer mentioned to me, that in Windows some VRAM space is probably reserved and that such program cant test it, where is some CD/USB version, but i never tested it.
* Im not really some how much complete test this is, if really check every memory cell or its more high level.
* I found out tam test is depended on RAM, i had once bad area in RAM stick, Windows worked "fine", but this test showed my errors in VRAM, but it was false report and VRAM was ok, RAM stick was broken.
So im looking for something better, some old version of OCCT had in the past some button for VRAM testing, but its dependent in videa card drivers and not works with newer cards / drivers and in new version OCCT i dont see such option. Other tools new some Nvidia Cuda stuff installed or have other annoying features.. maybe someone knew something better.
For example now i bough 10 videocards package,only because i want 1 of them and need to test them..
