    Maximum PC, a major computer player in both the cyber space and publishing media, has put together a list of what they think are the most essential PC apps every user of Windows ought to have installed. All 32 apps (except one) in the list are absolutely free for use. It's very important to mention that our GPU-Z utility is among them. Here's what Maximum PC has to say about GPU-Z:
    I would like to use this occasion to thank my boss and creator of GPU-Z W1zzard for all the good work he has done, and I think we all should be thankful for his efforts.

    W1z, you are a gentleman and a scholar, fantasic little app that i have used since version 0.1, when it already kicked ass and showed a huge amount of potential for what it has become today and what it will be towards the future.

    i couldnt show off my beefy gfx subsystem without this app, and the monitoring goes without question, clocks, temps, volts, amps, it has it all.

    hats off to my man W1z, you really do deserve it mate.

    Woot!

    I discovered techpowerup.com through something similar. Digit, an Indian tech print-magazine had a column about ATI Tool in a "overclocker essentials" article.

    Congrats W1zz, GPU-z is a really good program. Lightweight, efficient, gives a lot of detail about graphics cards, but it doesn't bake cakes :ohwell:.

    Congratulations Wizz!




    Who here remembers Maximum PC when it was Boot-Pc? Cicra 96-98


    I still have the last copy of boot and the first ever Maximum PC after the name change and the publisher change.
