    I'm just testing GPU-Z for the first time, seems very nifty, but I haven't found the answer to this question:

    Does it support AMD E-350/E-450 properly (aka Fusion E-series or Brazos Zacate or HD 6310/6320) ?

    The main GPU-Z page seems to say all NVIDIA and AMD cards are supported but nothing about Intel.

    But in the release notes is says you have full support for the most popular Intel cards (Sandy B & Ivy B). And a lot of other cards and chips are mentioned. But it doesn't say much about AMD's E-Series.

    Thanks but what I want to know is if it properly shows GPU usage, that's all I'm interested in.

    For some chips and boards you have written in the release history that you added "full support" for them (e g for Ivy Bridge and Fusion A-series) so for them it is clear to me, but not so clear for E-series.

    gpu usage monitoring should work on zacate.

    can you test it?

    Yes I get figures >0% but I don't know if they are correct or not. There are some surprising values. Either GPU isn't always utilized or values aren't correct.

    furmark should reach 95%+
    McQueen says thanks.

    Thanks. FurMark makes it about 85% so I guess that's ok then. A funny thing is that OpenCL isn't ticked in GPU-Z but FurMark uses OpenCL it says.

    A few interesting observations are that for Ivy Bridge HD2500, the tick "enable HW acceleration" has no effect on CPU or GPU usage for Adobe Flash, MS Silverlight or PowerDVD. For E-350 it has an effect only for Flash (but E-350 still uses a lot of CPU).

    And for HD2500 when I use Silverlight 4.0 (which has no HW acceleration) it shows CPU 5% GPU 8% when playing a video (not in full screen) and system is idle besides that video. Movie in full screen gives much higher GPU usage on E-350 but not on HD2500. And moving the mouse on E-350 causes GPU peaks up to 20%.

    Thanks for the tool, interesting results. I'm not sure though if the result is that e g for Silverlight HW acceleration is always enabled or never enabled. But the tick that is supposed to turn it on/off sure doesn't work. When all is idle, GPU is at 0 to 1%. Would be interesting to know what parts in a modern PC that utilize the GPU besides h.264 video. I know some 3D effects are used for desktop effects but was surprised the mouse movement uses GPU so much.
