TechPowerUp GPU-Z 1.9.0 Released

TechPowerUp today released the latest version of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem information, diagnostic, and monitoring utility that no enthusiast can leave home without. With the latest version 1.9.0, GPU-Z is out of "beta." We chose 1.9.0 over the more sequential 1.0.0 as it presents better continuity and averts the confusion of 1.0.0 (read 1.0) somehow sounding older.

Version 1.9.0 adds support for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, GTX 940MX, and GT 740 (GK107). On machines with GeForce "Pascal" GPUs, it can also tell if you have an SLI HB bridge installed in your machine or a classic SLI bridge. This way you know if your pre-built OEM has cut-costs. GPU-Z can now reliably extract video BIOS from AMD "Polaris" GPUs such as the Radeon RX 480. Improvements were made to the way it reads engine clock on AMD "Polaris" GPUs. All communication between GPU-Z and TechPowerUp servers (such as voluntary BIOS uploads, validations, etc.) now happens over secure HTTPS.

The change-log follows.

  • Added support for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060
  • Fixed BIOS saving on AMD Polaris
  • Fixed default clock reading on AMD Polaris
  • Added transistor count for AMD Ellesmere
  • Added support to indicate SLI high-speed bridge status
  • Fixed incorrect sensor readings when AMD GPU is disabled or no driver installed
  • Fixed BIOS saving on NVIDIA GTX 690
  • Switched to https when connecting to TPU server
  • Added support for NVIDIA GT 730 (GK107), GeForce 940MX

Should it not be 0.9.1?
Ha this typo made me check my last version. I believe it should be 0.9.1.

EDIT: Never mind I did not read it either and now I'm a shamed.

I believe they made a conscious decision to pull a Microsoft (W10) and skip numbers, deliberately naming the Release version a number ahead of where they really are.

EDIT: Removed quotes that have changed. LOL.

Ummmm, what's the problem exactly, other than you are wanting different aesthetics? Is there a usability problem with the design?

while the close button aligns perfectly with the right hand side of the main gpuz application box, the drop down menu on the left is like 5 pixels away from being perfectly aligned. Ocd people notice these things.

Well, I'm not much of a fan of Asus, even less of that ROG style. :)

the only reason i use the rog skin is the fact that its black. my eyes are sensitive as f@ck, its so irritating at times.
if someone could be bothered i would love a TPU dark version!

While you're at it, could you also number the cards/GPUs? It's a tad annoying having no indication of which GPU is which for us multiGPU users.
