TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.8.0 Released

TechPowerUp rolled out the latest version of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem information, diagnostic, and monitoring app, which no enthusiast can leave home without. Version 0.8.0 introduces support for a large number of new GPUs, and fixes several bugs. To begin with, GPU-Z 0.8.0 adds full support for GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970, including a reliable method of extracting BIOS from GeForce "Maxwell" GPUs. Support is also added for Quadro K420, K620, K2000D, K2200, K4200, K5200; and Radeon R5 M240, R5 M255, FirePro W2100, W4100, W8100, FireStream 9270, FirePro 2450. Preliminary support is added for AMD "Topaz" GPU.

GPU-Z 0.8.0 now accurately measures dedicated and dynamic memory usage on Windows 8 and 8.1 systems. A system hang is fixed on systems with AMD "Hawaii" GPUs, when GPU-Z is running alongside an accelerated video playback. GPU-Z now correctly reads the ROP and stream processor counts of AMD "Tonga" GPU, with updated die-size info. Stuttering on systems with CrossFire ULPS is fixed. The change-log details other relevant changes.

Great, and now with a warning that your driver will be stoped during saving the BIOS to the online database!
(I will do that later)

Both thumbs up!

I couldn't find any other way to make it work reliably. It works quite well though, haven't experienced any system crashes or data loss.

No crashes no. (but last time -unaware of the consecuences-I tried to upload the bios while working and it was not a good choice, hehe)

GPU-Z can't handle scaling with DPI (mine is set @125% through windows 8.1 personalize/display settings). I hope [USER=1]W1zzard[/USER] can fix it :)

I do wonder what w1zz is waiting for... for the 1.0 release. Windows 10? OpenGL 5.0? DirectX 12? Apple OSX support? Humans landing on Mars? The Hadron collider discovering the Atom Valence constant is 42?

I suppose system hang on Pitcairn was fixed too, if it was fixed on Hawaii.
