No that better have been a joke

Artifacts are from memory or GPU overheating. Artifacts only live for a fraction of a second. Examples would be some big black triangle appearing, a wall going multicolor hippie style or an area randomly changing shades.

Artifacts are not things that stay on your screen, is not when a player does some weird move like moving into the ground, when your boxes or power lines look jagged or when the grund or an object is pitch black and doesnt have any light.

Ok, so when i see greenish triangles when doing my 3Dmark tests, is that an artifact? But as you say my gpu isnt even close to overheating, so why would they appear? In my gpu settings it say the current temp, the ambient temp and the threshold temp of 127C...i never knew that was actually the right temp in that box. I never thought any GPU could get close to that temp and still work effectively, thanks for the info.

I think green triangles are probolly artifacts, your memory being too hot also causes artifacts
