    Today TechPowerUp presents version 0.3.6 of GPU-Z, our graphics sub-system diagnostic utility that provides information on the computer's installed graphics hardware, their various specifications, and provides real-time updates on their parameters such as clock-speeds, temperatures, voltages, and fan-speeds. The utility is backed by our overclock validation system, and an extensive video-card BIOS database. This release brings with it a few important changes that improve compatibility with the latest graphics processors, and enhance usability.

    To begin with, GPU-Z introduces an infotip feature that makes understanding graphics hardware easier. Hovering the mouse over an information field shows concise information related to that field. Along with polished support for ATI Radeon HD 5850, and HD 5700 series, version 0.3.6 introduces preliminary support for AMD's newer GPUs. Also introduced is support for several of NVIDIA's GeForce 100 and 200 series GPUs, and some Tesla GPGPU processors. A number of stability issues have also been fixed.

    • Added Infotips, they can be turned off in the system menu

    • Fillrate Pixel, Fillrate Texel, Memory Bandwidth will now correctly recalculate when clocks change
    • Bus Interface, ATI shader count is now periodically refreshed
    • Added support for HD 5850 voltages
    • Second voltage on HD 5870 correctly named VDDCI
    • ATI clock reading code fixed
    • Fixed default clock reading on HD 5850
    • Added Mutex to avoid collisions on long I2C operations
    • Added basic detection for a lot of NVIDIA card fakes (NV41 sold as 9800 GT etc..)
    • Added detection for ATI FireGL V7600, M92, RS880
    • Added detection for NVIDIA GT 130, 9600 GE, Tesla C1060, G 220, GT 220, NVS 3100, GTS 160 M, NVS 160M, NVS 150M, G105M, GT 240M, G105M, G210M, G310M, ION LE

    The info-tips feature is genius! :toast:

    For real?! Would these be cards being "made" by naughty manufacturers trying to make a quick buck?

    i dont know the details about those fakes. but i am seeing a huge number of gpuz submissions from china using cheap gpus with device ids that nvidia doesn't use officially and the driverstring says something like "9800 GT" "9600 GT" etc ...

    Thanks W1zzard! GPU-Z is better than ever, and the info-tip balloons are a nice touch. Keep up the great work! :respect:

    its your web browser or some security software interfering, such as antivirus or firewall.

    I vaguely recall zone alarm doing this to me in the past.

    @Mussels

    Is that the bug where when you run GPU-Z it would slow down GPU-Z to a crawl? I get that too with my J&W/EMAXX 785G board (the one with both DDR2 and DDR3 compatibility).

    sounds like the same issue to me. it slows down and goes "not responding" all the time, and gives invalid readouts.

    try reading a few posts above yours.

    great fixes and additions as always W1z, Can't live without this app :toast:

    that's really odd with the cut down Chinese fakes... But I swear you couldn't get a Nvidia Geforce FX5600XT 128mb 64-bit in Australia, but existed overseas, and I was stupid enough to buy one....waaaay back then.

    can you check if going to www.techpowerup.com, then downloads and then gpu-z works ? what is your ip address? are you behind some kind of proxy?
