TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.5.9 Released

TechPowerUp today released the latest version of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem information and diagnostic utility. GPU-Z briefs you on the graphics hardware installed in the system, and lets you monitor clock speeds, voltages, temperatures, fan-speeds, and other information in real-time. The new version adds full-support for AMD's Radeon HD 7700 series "Cape Verde" GPUs (HD 7770 and HD 7750) that are bound for launch a little later this month. The new version also has an updated ASIC Quality calculation formula that makes reading on NVIDIA GPUs more reliable.

Other important updates include voltage monitoring support for Radeon HD 7970 and HD 7950; support for some rare GeForce GT 520 variants that are based on GF108, GeForce GTX 555 (OEM), GeForce 305M, and GeForce 610M; and more reliable memory size reading for AMD Radeon graphics cards with large memory sizes. Sensors now refresh in the background by default (and not just when the Sensors tab is in the foreground). The board ID is now displayed along with the BIOS version string.

The complete change-log detailing even more updates follows.

  • Added support for AMD Radeon HD 7750 and HD 7770
  • Added voltage monitoring for HD 7950 and HD 7970
  • Fixed memory size readings for ATI cards with large VRAM
  • Improved formula for NVIDIA ASIC Quality reading
  • Added explanation text to ASIC quality window
  • Fixed bug that caused updater to show up even though no update available, lagging GPU-Z.
  • When multi-GPU setup detected, PCIe load test will recommend full screen
  • Added board ID to BIOS version readout
  • Added option to show sensor reading in GPU-Z title (click the arrow next to the sensor name)
  • Refresh sensors in background now defaults to enabled
  • Fixed release date for HD 7950
  • Added PCI vendor Packard Bell
  • Fix for ATI hardware access breaking on Catalyst 12.1
  • Added fan RPM monitoring support on some ATI cards
  • Added GF108 based GT 520, GTX 555 (non-mobile), GeForce 305M, 610M

W1zzard, any more languages will be added someday?
Mine looks okay, no DPI problem.

On my notebook the text changed from smooth to draft and the BIOS version from unknown to ()

Seems to fix the memory clock misreading problems I had with 0.5.8 on my HD 7950. Thanks W1z!

I don't think the ASIC quality interpretation is correct. Voltage correlation is right, but power consumption of high leakage chips is higher when using the same voltage. That's why they drop the default VID of those cards, so they should equal the low leakage cards. Of course they might drop it so that the power consumption is slightly less, but the point of the VID binning is to even them out.

Also on stock voltage neither is inherently better at OC since the the high leakage chips are given a lower voltage to begin with. Also software voltage OC is similar since low leakage ASICs can take voltage more easily, and the high leakage chips will end up hitting the OCP at some point. So you need to do a hard mod to remove the OCP. For extreme overclockers a higher leakage chip is what ultimately gives the best results, but these ASICs are not desirable for the avarage user.

ASIC formula definatly improved and more sensible, I have gone from 117.something to 95.1.

The one with the rog skin causes my system to hang.

Also gives error:

ASIC Quality 79.1% on a GTX570, how good or average is that?

^^^ Start a thread for ASIC quality tables then we can find out! we can all then post scores, card, model, rev etc to get a feel for whats about. and especially if any particular manufacturers are creaming the best GPU's.

The idea is great, but I would be a horrible threadkeep! it would barely get updated once a week :P unless we can start a thread where more than one member can update the OP?
