If the manufacturer would share their testing code with us,
we'd be able to test some things, like they do.
But as long as the manufacturer test details are unknown,
all we can do is "play 3D games" as a test, or use tools
like Furmark or ATI Tool. Furmark seems to exist, mainly
to generate heat, so may not be the best test. And Ati Tool
may not work with all operating systems. http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=204 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atitool http://www.techpowerup.com/atitool/
Using GPGPU code, CUDA or OpenCL, might be another way to do
testing, but then that will only be testing programmable
shaders, and not give good test coverage for other component
parts of the GPU.
In short, we don't have good tests. Only partial tests.
