    Hi everybody!

    I have a Gigabyte 9800GTX+ 1GB, and the newest GPU-Z version 0.3.0.
    I am running Vista 64 Bit and have the Nvidia driver one before the newest.
    It can't read the following fields:
    1. Pixell Fillrate.
    2. Texture Fillrate.
    3. Bandwith.

    In addition, It doesn't detect all the clocks in normal operation but only when I'm in a game.

    Any Ideas ??

    There is also a bug that should be fixed:

    Tech is 55 nm, not 65nm.

    The issue with the GPU die size has been posted several times. GPU-Z can't distinguish what size the GPU is from the driver. Don't worry about it.

    I can see that GPU-Z identifies all the fields for your card. Is it a Gigabyte recognition problem then ? Is there a fix planned ??

    Some of the GTX+ cards are 65nm.Only the newest ones are 55nm.If your card is 10.5 inches long and has two 6 pin plugs,its 65nm.If its 9 inches long and has one plug,its 55nm.

    Gigabyte's Support Team have supplied me with a BIOS version that fixes this problem.

    Thank you Gigabyte!

    No offence but thats incorrect and unless I am mistaken, all 9800GTX+ video cards are 55nm.

    For anyone who wants some reassurance, just take off the cooler and if the core is a B revision, then its a 55nm core.

    I got info from a nvidia tech that if they have 2 plugs ,which makes sence,that they are the more power hungry 65nm.Thats why if you look at all the GTX+cards at newegg or wherever,you will see some are 2 plugs and some have 1.

    All 9800GTX+ cards are 55nm, two plugs or one, it doesn't matter.

    See here for proof of that.

    The 9800GTX without the + are 65nm. Unfortunately, GPU-z and all other software like it can't tell if a card has a 55nm G92 core of the 65nm G92 core. The only way to tell is to remove the heatsink and look for yourself.

    No, it is all cards. but this one example serves to prove you wrong.

    The single plug 9800GTX+ cards just very recently came out as nVidia just finally started allowing companies to custom design their own 9800GTX+ PCBs. The single plug cards were produced to cut production costs, it has nothing to do with the 55nm cores.

    All 9800GTX+ are 55nm. The reason Nvidia put the "+" at the end was to differentiate between the 55nm and 65nm. Also GPU-Z 0.3.1 was just released. Check it out.

    Go out and buy a GTX+ that is 10.5 inches long and has two 6 pin plugs and ill guarantee it has a 65nm core.They didnt just make the new GTX+ cards shorter and have one plug to cut costs.Its mainly cause it uses less power than 65nm ones.Its funny how they didnt announce on the box like they did with the new GTX260 cards that it has a 55nm core.You dont even know what nvidia and its partners are capable of.lol

    Check this card out,Its a GTX+ in a GTX box. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130339

    The whole point here is that GPU-Z doesnt read these cards or mine right.So you dont even know what it is unless you take the heatsink off.

    I have bought several 9800GTX+ cards that use the reference 10.5" PCB with two 6-pin connectors. Every single one has been 55nm. And yes, I have taken the coolers off of every single one to install waterblocks.

    You make these guarantees, yet I have already shown you are wrong. Still not convinced? Oh look an XFX 9800GTX+ using the 10.5" PCB and two 6-pin connectors that has a 55nm core on it too... Still not convinced? Oh look another 9800GTX+ using the 10.5" PCB with two 6-pin connectors that has a 55nm core on it...:shadedshu

    Also, that is not a 9800GTX+ in a 9800GTX box. Newegg just got the pictures wrong, which isn't a surprise: See here, here, and here.

    I didnt say there arent any 55nm GTX+ cards.I said there are 65nm GTX+ cards.:banghead:

    And read the reviews at newegg.

    Your problem is that you're using the XP forceware on a vista machine, it will fix your problems if you install the correct nv drivers.

    Edit: Sorry, I was under the impression that the screenshot in the second post was the same as the OP. Disreagard

    The reviews on newegg show nothing, most are written by completely idiots, and I bet all of them that claim they got a 65nm card just ran GPU-z or something similar and went by that. None probably removed the heatsink to be sure.

    And actually, yes you are saying there aren't any 55nm GTX+ cards, or at least you are saying there aren't any that are 10.5" long with two 6-pin plugs. Show me one 9800GTX+ that is 65nm, that has the cooler removed to confirm it is 65nm with pictures.

    Oh, and if we are going buy newegg reviews... See here. Search for 65nm and you will see "Tim" claim this card is 65nm. Odd, it is one of the short versions with only one 6-pin though...:shadedshu

    Considering what you are saying is going against all facts on the matter, you should probablly post some sort of proof to back your claims. Though really, it doesn't matter due to the fact this thread is supposed to be about GPU-Z.

    Right, back on topic.

    I had the same issue when my drivers were not installed correctly. I had to run driver sweeper in safe mode to get rid of the left over bits of the old driver, then install the newest to get GPU-z to show properly.

    Hi Everyone,

    As I've already stated, the problem was solved with the help of the gigabyte support team.
    they have given me a new BIOS version which fixed this problem.

    Thanks for all of your suggesstions!

    If you look in the nvidia drivers it proves theres 65nm versions of GTX+



    NVIDIA_G92.DEV_0612.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX/9800 GTX+"
    NVIDIA_G92.DEV_0613.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+"


    Tme first reference is the 65nm version used on the original GTX and first batch of GTX+ cards.
    The second reference is the newer 55nm GTX+.And where do you see "Tim" say he pulled off the hsf to check it?He probably checked it with gpu-z,which we all know isnt right.

    The drivers do not prove anything. When I apply the latest drivers to my 9800GTX, it then read as a 9800GTX/9800GTX+. It is pretty well known that nVidia did not change the device ID on the 9800GTX+, which is what is causing the issue with GPU-z in the first place. Both the 9800GTX and 9800GTX+ had the same device ID, despite the different cores. The line in the drivers is simply to reflect that the device ID applies to both cards.

    Well to answer the op question,I just installed a EVGA 9800 GTX+ in my sons computer that I ordered from newegg 3 days ago and it has all fields and says 55nm.And thats using the latest GPU-Z,so I guess it is working right.So if it says 65nm,I guess its 65nm.

    Screenshot, or it isn't true, because according to W1z(the creator of GPU-z) it will never detect the 9800GTX+ as a 55nm. However, maybe with the new shorter cards having a new device ID, it finally will.
