TechPowerUp Releases GPU-Z 0.8.8

TechPowerUp released the latest version of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsytem information, monitoring, and diagnostic utility that no PC enthusiast can leave home without. Version 0.8.8 adds a plethora of new user-interface features, and support for new GPUs. To begin with, we've consolidated all 'expert' features and settings into a convenient new "settings" dialog box, which appears when you click on the "hamburger" menu around the top-right corner of the main tab (next to the "screenshot" button). This is where you'll be able to configure how GPU-Z gets along with your machine, customize the "sensors" tab, and also use the refreshed "ASIC quality" information utility.

In addition to displaying your GPU's ASIC quality, GPU-Z now tells you how your ASIC compares to similar GPUs recorded in our GPU-Z validation database. GPU-Z can now read ASIC quality of AMD "Tonga" and "Fiji" GPUs. Support is added for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 980 (desktop on laptop), GTX 965M, 940M, 910M, GT 755M, Quadro M6000 24 GB, M4000M, K3100M, M500M, Tesla M40, and M60. GPU-Z can now correctly read BIOS from GPUs installed on motherboards/graphics cards with PLX PEX8747 PCIe bridge chips. Support is also added for Intel Iris Pro 530 "GT3e" graphics. More details in the change-log below.

Wow my 390 with 68% is 5.9% higher than the average...kinda disappointing AMD.

My old 460s were mid 80s and 90s.

Wonder if a feature could be added to show the % average for each vendor as a whole? Given all cards and such added to the database.

so now we really start to compare amd to nvidia asic ??
all my amd cards were lower asic then nvidia but this means nothing.
i hope that the evga asic selling is not going to be popular

You kids and your ASIC quality. What will they think of next? :rolleyes:
Agreed! I've found it doesn't make much of a difference unless you are the rare person over 90%.

From my observations with EVGA, SC, SSC, etc were always binned based on an ASIC range. They just finally admitted to it.
