TechPowerUp Announces GPU-Z 0.4.6, MSI GPU-Z Giveaway

TechPowerUp today released version 0.4.6 of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem diagnostic utility that provides you with detailed tech-specs of your installed graphics processors, and lets you monitor clock speeds, voltages, temperatures and fan speeds. The new version packs with it support for new GPUs that are being released in the weeks to come, detection for some future GPUs, and a range of stability enhancements. It features detection of upcoming GeForce GTS/GT 400 GPUs, elementary support for AMD Radeon HD 6000 series GPUs, improved BIOS reading, and stability fixes pertaining to certain sensor chips.

With this release, MSI and TechPowerUp are teaming up for a new Hardware Giveaway, that lets six lucky winners win some rad graphics hardware from MSI over two months (three each month).

Hey Wizz, Is it safe to assume that you set these promotions up when you're in Taiwan for Computex?

Has there been a change to the rules?
I believe there was a change - only one person/pc/ip per entry now, not multiple computers/entries etc.
Or was that idea quashed?

Maybe do a US only giveaway, then a Europe only giveaway, etc. etc. One for each continent. Then an Antarctica only one :laugh:

Makes a nice change from most online giveaways where ONLY U.S. applicants are allowed. In fact, about 90% of giveaways are like that :mad:

Anyway, I did notice that no-one from France has won. Yet. ;)

Ludivic did, but he didn't reply to the e-mail so the prize was given to someone else.
Wouldn't you just hate yourself if you did that? I feel sorry for him/her
