You probably put it in a while ago, but I really like the hover over boxes. Nice explanations on all the info shown.

It is cool, but does not recognize 3dfx cards. Too bad, I cannot verify my overclocking results with it.

Same here, I love the pop up info boxes because there were a few specs listed that I didn't understand and I now do.:D Thanks W1z for yet another great version of GPU-Z.:toast:

Btw, what ever happened to the TPU and MSI gpu-z giveaway...what were the results of that contest?

Neither did I, unless the new (Intel) Sandy Bridge mobos have this. Hope it does as I'm getting new PC once its released but still using my current 5970. I read that PCIe 3.0 should help improve performance of PCIe 2.1/2.0 as it features extra overhead.

Indepth PCIe 3.0 FAQ here which I found informative.
