TechPowerUp’s GPU-Z reached v0.6.0
Andy Ruffell / 5 years ago
TechPowerUp has recently released the latest version of GPU-Z, the PC enthusiast’s best friend. The new version reaches the 0.6.0 edition and offers a set of new features.
The new version introduces refined support for Nvidia’s upcoming Kepler architecture GPUs, such as GeForce GTX 680 and GeForce GT 6x0M; as well as the recently-launched AMD Radeon HD 7800 series.
GPU-Z now features an installer, which places shortcuts, and an uninstall entry. GPU-Z can also be used as portable utility, just choose not to install, and use it standalone instead.
AMD altered a high-level API with its Catalyst 12.2 drivers, which is what the utility uses to talk to the hardware conventionally. Those updating their Catalyst driver to version 12.2 won’t see its effects on older GPU-Z versions, those with Catalyst 12.2 “clean-installed” on the other hand might. With version 0.6.0 of GPU-Z, this issue is addressed and should now work normally with systems running Catalyst 12.2 clean-installed.
The other changes that were made with version 0.6.0 include:
- Added optional GPU-Z installer which launches when GPU-Z is started for the first time, or can be started manually via the GPU-Z system menu
- Added support for AMD Radeon HD 7870, HD 7850, HD 7670M, FireStream 9370, FirePro V3900
- Added support for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680, GT 640M, GTX 560 SE, GT 550M, GeForce 510, NVS 2100M
- Fixed clocks not showing correctly on some systems with Catalyst 12.2
- Fixed board id reading on pre-Fermi cards
- Fixed OpenCL detection for ATI Fusion (Sumo & Ontario)
- Fixed GPU-Z window getting cut off at certain DPI settings
