TechPowerUp GPU-Z 0.7.6 Released

TechPowerUp released GPU-Z version 0.7.6, the latest version of the popular lightweight graphics subsystem information, monitoring, and diagnostic utility. Version 0.7.6 comes with support for new GPUs, including NVIDIA's upcoming Maxwell architecture. It also introduces the ability to tell the vendor of memory chips on your discrete graphics card, and a reliable new BIOS reading method for NVIDIA GPUs.

To begin with, GPU-Z adds support for NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX TITAN Black, GeForce GTX 750 Ti, GTX 750 (non-Ti), both of which are based on NVIDIA's "Maxwell" micro-architecture, GTX 840M, and new GTX 760 "lite" (192-bit). On the AMD front, it adds support for AMD A-Series "Kaveri" iGPUs, Radeon R7 M265, FireStream 9350, HD 8530M, and HD 8650D. A new Intel Iris Pro 5200 variant is supported.

GPU-Z 0.7.6 comes with a revolutionary new feature, the ability to tell the vendor of the memory chips on your graphics card, so you don't have to take your card apart to tell the same. GPU-Z 0.7.6 also integrates NVIDIA NVFlash to reliably read BIOS of NVIDIA GPUs. Voltage monitoring of GeForce GTX 780 Ti is improved.

Oooooh, Maxwell and Titan Black at the same time, this is going to be a busy year !

So are Hynix chips good?

hynix memory are well known for good memory OC compared to elpidia.

Hmmm integrated NVFLASH? any chance for ATIFLASH soon?

How about fixing those vertical alignment issues with labels (to the left of fields containing data) ? They are all misaligned by a number of pixels (which is most pronounced at the bottom of the screen where the checkboxes for OpenCL and related features are located), this makes your application look sloppy and should be trivial to fix.

NVFlash is only used to more reliably read the BIOS. ATI BIOS is already read reliably.

Rough rule of thumb I've observed...

If you see ~100-400mhz (5%) or so over rated spec, it's prolly Elpida.
If you see ~400-700 (~10%), it's prolly Hynix.
If you see ~700-1000 (>10%), it's prolly Samsung.

Samsung is premium. Hynix is a lot cheaper than Samsung, but performs decently. Elpida is cheap crap, and I wish people would stop using it. Hopefully the fact that the most-used gpu tool, often clearly displayed in ads and reviews, now has the memory type shown for all to see will encourage AIBs to use higher-quality ram.

Thanks W1z, awesome addition and very thoughtful. Believe it or not, little stuff like this helps people more than simply letting us know what our current card uses and how we should expect it to perform. :)

Love the memory chip model feature. ;]
BTW I think it's time GPU-Z had some up-to-date screenshots in its official page. :)

Hope now to see some actual specs on the read-outs in the Kaveri OC/bench threads I keep following, as well as HWBot.

Thanks, this time the update was pretty snapy. :)

Just downloaded the new GPU-z, looks like my video card is running Elpida ram.

Haha! The ROG version shows Information Balloons, whereas the standard version does not. Why not? It's a good element.

Oh. Btw, thanks for the new version.

My 7970's have Hynix; my 5870's have Samsung. :)

CUDA detection seems to be broken again on my GTX 680M - 0.7.5 did work.
...and/or Optimus misbehaving?

I don't remember making any changes to CUDA detection code

Must continue this after checking 0.7.7. The same behaviour continues: sensors tab readings alternate 0.0 and 770.8 (GTX 680M + HD4000)
Log looks like this:

0.7.5 didn't do this, shows constant 770.8 and then clocking down in 3 steps.

Sorry, my stupidness - Probably someone can learn of this;
I thought I had forced GPU-Z to use Nvidia on NV Control Panel - but I didn't!
So just remember to go to Nvidia CP 3D settings and force GPU-Z to use the enhanced gfx controller.

You should repost this in the GPU-Z Subforum Here: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/forums/gpu-z.53/
You may get a quicker response since this is just a news article.

No response needed - just FYI to avoid the same mistake.

Well the mistake will only be avoided if the person who needs to know actually sees your post. Catch my drift?
