    It should be noted that w1zzard is aware of this issue, what we want is more people with the same problem to come forward and report any information they can.

    Problem: GPU-Z is too big.

    [​IMG]

    Thats my GPU-Z on the right, sitting on top of a browser window (the GPU-Z page) showing the size difference.


    How to reproduce it:

    1. Must be running windows 7
    2. Must be on a high resolution display (1080p and above?)
    3. windows must DEFAULT you to the following setting of 125%
    [​IMG]


    The exact problem is that when you are defaulted to 125%, everything is made larger.
    When you drop to 100%, GPU-Z doesnt drop with it.


    This same problem used to occur on CPU-Z as well, screenshot for proof

    We just anyone else with this issue to step forward, w1zzards not going to bother fixing it if its just me.


    notes:
    • if you default to 100%, you can change up and down problem free
    • we beleive the default is chosen when you install windows, but we arent sure.

    i confirmed its related to when you install 7, i shut down my PC and connected a low res screen and rebooted, and it stayed at 125% default - even on a 1024x768 screen.

    My laptop screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 has Smaller 100% as the default.
    Course, I have to log off and back on for settings to take affect. But if needed, I could go
    check my desktop right quick and see what it does.

    if your default is at 100%, it cannot cause this problem.

    the default MUST be at 125% (or 150%) in order for this problem to appear.

    its a pain to find other people with the issue, since it all depends on the resolution detected when you install windows (or perhaps create the user account?)

    I'm going to have to agree on the fact it is chosen when you install Windows.
    My laptop (1280 x 800) and desktop (1920 x 1200) both show 100% as default.
    Anyone willing to reinstall and see if this is the case?

    when i installed windows it was via HDMI on a video card with built in drivers (so it was at 1080p when windows started)

    did your video card come with generic/default drivers in 7, and can you recall if you had to manually raise the resolution post install?

    Mine was all auto, and defaulted to 1920x1200, and was connected via HDMI.

    it must be 1920x1080 specifically, it seems it doesnt occur on 1200P screens from what you've all said.
