The first thing that we all do after buying a new gadget is to push its limits and see how it performs. In case of new Bluetooth speakers, we try to ramp up their volume to the max while playing rock music from 80s. And in case of a new graphics processor card, we tend to play video games with all of their graphics settings set to the maximum values. But then there are benchmark software that can stress test your graphics cards while pushing the limits of all the features offered by your graphics card.
Unigine Superposition is a benchmark software that can be used to stress test your graphics cards. It works with AMD Radeon HD 7xxx, Intel HD Graphics 5xxx, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 4xx and above. It works both with the standard gaming rigs as well as VR (virtual reality) headsets such as Oculus Rift and HTC Vivo. It is available for only 64-bit versions of Windows 7 or above and Linux.
This benchmark tool is useful when you have cleaned up your gaming rig and applied new thermal paste. You can use Superposition to ensure that your graphics card and the main processor on the motherboard are both able to handle extreme heat conditions. This is very important if you are running your main processor or the GPU overclocked. If the temperatures are raising above an average level then you should re-consider cooling setup for your gaming PC.
Superposition provides a free exploration mode in which you can explore the highly detailed surroundings in the room. You can use the VR headsets to explore the details or use your mouse to navigate through different things. You can even discover some of the smaller games that are designed to be a surprise in the benchmark software.
