My System Specs

Default FurMark vs GPU Caps - Stress Issue & Temps

Hey all. I'm going to keep this simple.

If I run GPU Caps Open GL Stability test at 1680*1050 MSAA x8, my Radeon 5850 temps go to 82C max with a fan speed auto regulated at 33%.

If I run FurMark Stress test at the same resolution, my Radeon 5850 temps top out at 72C max with the fan auto regulated maxing out at 33%.

The temps are measured through GPU-Z and Catalyst Control Center and in every instance, both read the same temps.

So what gives? Isn't 100% GPU utilization 100% GPU utilization?
