TechPowerUp GPU-Z 0.3.6 Released

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 full support for HD 5850, HD 5770, HD 5750
  • GPU-Z no longer crashes on ATI ULPS enabled CrossFire configurations
  • 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

any chance you are running an old version of kaspersky ?
its not related to kaspersky, i've got the same build on both my machines (9.0.0.463) and it only lags on one.

its definately related to the 785G chipset, perhaps with models that have the built in sideport memory?

With your board, are you able to dedicate the IGP to use only the 128MB of DDR3 sideport memory? Or can you only use it with UMA (shared system memory)? (e.g. SIDEPORT+UMA, UMA only, etc.)

sideport only, system ram only, sideport + system ram.

lets try and keep this in the thread specifically about the issue, and not clog this one up.

Well, it is kinda about the issue as I get the same problem on 0.3.5 with all three options. 0.3.6 seems to be okay, but 128MB(Sideport)+128MB(SysMem) only shows up as 176MB, when it should be 256MB.

The weird thing is, CCC shows a maximum of 700MB, when it should be at the most, 640MB (128MB(SP) + 512MB(SM) = 640MB total).

I'm thinking it's a Catalyst 9.9 driver issue, and not completely a GPU-Z 0.3.5 issue.

Hi W1zz, i'm having issues with the tooltips. They don't show up at all altough the "Enable Help Tooltips" checkbox is ticked. OS is Win7 x64 with a GTX 285. On my 2nd PC, running Win7 x86 with a Radeon X1900XT, the tooltips do show up with no problem. UAC is disabled on both machines btw.

Thanks for the hint into the right direction, i found the problem by myself:

Changing HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\EnableBalloonTips from 0 to 1 brought the tooltips back. Strange thing as i haven't altered that settings ever before.

Nevermind, nice GPU-Z update, keep it going...
