    TechPowerUp announced version 0.6.8 of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem information, monitoring, and diagnostic utility, which gives you detailed information about the installed graphics hardware, and lets you monitor key specifications in real-time, such as clock speeds, temperatures, voltages, and video memory usage. Version 0.6.8 introduces support for new GPUs, namely NVIDIA's GeForce GTX Titan, GeForce 505 (GT216), GT 640M, GTX 675MX, Quadro K2000, and K3000; AMD's Radeon HD 7480D, FirePro W8000, V8700, fake HD 6850 (based on HD 6450). GPU load monitoring method on AMD GPUs is improved, and should be more accurate. Several minor bugs were patched.

    - Chinese company buys HD 6450
    - modifies BIOS so that the device ID is one that is currently unused and not supported by the official driver
    - bundles special driver that shows the card as HD 6850
    - Profit!
     
    Phusius and 7mm say thanks.

    I must express my sincere admiration for your dedication to GPU-Z by even including cards like these! :)

    Edit:
    By the way, will the memory usage readout ever be changed for Windows 8 in any future version of GPU-Z? The dedicated memory useage never goes above 0 as far as I know, so I guess it has become a bit redundant?

    The idea is that the unlucky buyer can use GPU-Z to get real info on the card and possibly get his $$ back

    Yep, I can certainly understand that.

    However, I would imagine that of all the people using GPU-Z, only a very small fraction would ever need it for that exact purpose, so I found it admirable that you still choose included it your piece of software. :)

    I got no further info for you. I saw a submission that had an unknown GPU (because GPU-Z didn't know about the device Id), took a look at the data, determined it's fake. Added device id. Gotta wait for a submisison using working GPU-Z

    I can confirm that the GPU load measurement problem on Tahiti boards has been fixed. Thanks W1zzard! :lovetpu:

    Not exactly a 0.6.8 observation (but a 0.6.7 one)... but why did it take so long to implement a Texture Mapping Unit readout?

    We didn't have enough data. TMU count isn't something the driver will report.
