TechPowerUp GPU-Z 0.3.8 released

TechPowerUp released the newest version of GPU-Z, our graphics subsystem information and monitoring utility. Version 0.3.8 brings with it some useful updates that fix several crashes and add useful features to the vast amount of information this tiny utility can display. GPU-Z now displays three GPU load percentages on NVIDIA GPUs: 3D rendering core, memory controller and video acceleration engine. In addition to that we set the foundation to allow multi-language support in GPU-Z in the future. To move forward with this we'd like native speakers to help with support for their language. The whole effort is coordinated in our GPU-Z Translation Forum.

A complete list of changes according to the change log is as follows:

  • Added framework for translations in GPU-Z, to do that we need your help. Please go to tpu.me/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=72 to submit contributions in your language
  • Added sensors to monitor GPU load percentages on NVIDIA
  • Fixed startup on Windows 2000 (DLL not found)
  • Improved detection/added sensors for ATI M86
  • Fixed several NVAPI crashes
  • Fixed crash when PhysX not available
  • GPU-Z can now be set in its system menu to be always on top of other windows

so its showing me memory usage from the memory that sli in itself has availible and not on a per GPU basis since SLI is enabled?
its showing from the card the monitors on.

SLI doesnt add ram, so it'd show from the primary card in SLI, and out of SLI you'd get a readout per card (depending which one was selected)

i know SLI doesnt add ram......but since the ram of every core is replicating the same data than that means no matter what core i read off of it should display the same size. right? Which i would assume ment that only if SLI is disabled would the cores show diffirent memory usage depending on the core selected.

i dont think anyone knows how SLI works fully, so it may duplicate, or it may only duplicate some.

its possible that one GPU may have more ram used, or that they both show identical... i sure dont know (and i dont think anyone outside of Nvidia does for sure)

Nice... GPU Load. Is it done with NDA NVAPI or something else? considering it doesnt seems to work with g80, i would say opencl, since afaik opencl is not working on g80.

also bug that im geting in gtx295, win7 x64, 195.62 drivers... OpenCL is not checked and it should be:
