    Uh GPU-Z doesn't even work on my radeon 3850 AGP with 9.1 or 9.2 drivers.

    but I'm glad you are getting recognition because it did work flawlessly on my nVidia card.

    Ok not so flawlessly for the 6800 ultra oc , which kept giving me questionable inacurate over bloated fantastic memory bandwidth numbers.

    anyway congradulations ...

    even if I think it's biased towards nvidia.

    it gets handily whipped by oZone Caps.

    but then again I don't really like oZone Caps

    so I'm saying I like the GPU-Z GUI better

    And I hope some day it works on my 3850 AGP

    I really have no room to say anything bad about it since it was free.

    never smart mouth the programmer or you won't get any help lol

    cheers and I'm glad to see the program is getting such good pr.

    at least now I know it's being worked on.

    I've let the programmer know about my issue.

    nVidia fans please stop bragging about your overpriced nVidia cards as if nVidia are somehow the leaders of the pack, ATI have repeatedly demonstrated they can whip the crap out of nVidia
    so please just stop now, it makes you look stupid.

    especialy when the story is Sapphire Radeon HD3850 whips the crap out of the 6800 ultra oc
    and is the last AGP offering - basicaly meaning nVidia got punked on the AGP bus in the end.

    woot really nice to hear this from maximum pc

    quick status update: stress test working and about as hot/hotter than furmark, nvidia overclocking fully working, ati overclocking mostly done, sensors reading done no fancy graphs yet, no fan control yet, working voltage control for gt200 w/ volterra and some early ati cards, lua api/scripting interface about 25% done

    Damn. Sorry, but I've never had any problems with it. Wish I had so I could give some constructive criticism! :p

    Love it. Thanks W1zzard.
