Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool. I found Far Cry 2 Benchmark Tool finally. I wanted to benchmark all the 3D games that I have starting with Far Cry 2. Normally, games will have benchmark function after pull down the development console. However, Far Cry 2 skips all the hard ways. Far Cry 2 has its own benchmark tool. It is called FC2BenchmarkTool.exe and located at C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Far Cry 2\bin.
GPU-Z ~ a free utility designed to give you all information about your video card and GPU. It provides displays adapter, GPU and display information. It also provides displays overclock, default clocks and 3D clocks. I use it to trace my ATI HD 4870 GPU temp and fan speed. It has log to file function. Therefore, you can trace these during game play.
Prime95 is also known as Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS). It is a tool to find World Record Primes. However, it can be used as CPU torture tool as well. It is a great tool to stress your CPU because the torture test will use up all your CPU core and 100% CPU utilization. Who want to torture his own CPU anyway? Overclocker like me will need it. Besides this tool, I also use SpeedFan to monitor CPU temperature and CPU-Z for CPU core speed and bus speed.
FRAPS is a real-time video capture and benchmarking tool. I started using it since version 1. FRAPS latest version 2.9.8 now. It is a great tool to benchmark 3D games performance when the 3D games did not support benchmarking function. Besides benchmarking, FRAPS supports other nice features like screen capture and realtime video capture. The realtime video capture quality is nice. It is identical as the way you play in the games. Check out these videos at FRAPS website.
