I have been searching for software that can measure stress on video cards. I have an integrated Intel(R) HD Graphics card and I would like to test it.

Is there any software that can accomplish this?
I am running Windows 7, portable and free software is preferred.
Update: What I am trying to do is: I want to find out the stress on my video card with and without Windows Aero(and other visuaL effects) running.

  • Do you actually want to measure performance (FPS, quality of rendering)? Or do you really want to measure stress (excessive temperatures, board bending, faulty electrical power, etc)?

  • @NicolasRaoul The second one.

  • So, that means the current answer is off-topic, if I understand correctly? You might want to make your requirements extra-clear to prevent more off-topic answers. At least, please state the metrics (and for each the units) that you want the software to measure. That way you will get greater answers :-) By the way, welcome to SR!

  • @NicolasRaoul Thanks for pointing out.

I would recommend the cinebench OpenGL test. It stress tests your graphics card by running a pretty complex 3D scene. The result will be given in how fast the scene ran in FPS. Cinebench also has a CPU test

    Could you add a link and a screenshot? By the comments under the question it appears the OP looks for increase in temperature rather then throughput in FPS. Does the tool you mention cover that? Have a nice day. Aug 7 '15 at 7:17

I found Process Explorer from Sysinternals to fulfil my requirement.
Process Explorer
I gives real-time GPU usage with graphs, and I hope it is the tool that I was serching.
To get to the GPU information, press View, then System Information will get a new window, in which, switch to the GPU tab.
