TechPowerUp GPU-Z v2.8.0 Released

TechPowerUp today released GPU-Z v2.8.0, with important stability and feature updates. To begin with, we've addressed driver-crash issues seen on AMD "Raven Ridge" APU iGPU enabled systems, when using GPU-Z. The new DXVA 2.0 Features page in the "Advanced" tab is a ready-reckoner for all the video formats your GPUs provide hardware-acceleration for. We've made improvements to the accuracy of video memory usage readings on AMD Radeon GPUs, rendering performance of NVIDIA PerfCap sensor; and AMD power-limit readings in the "Advanced" tab.

Among the new GPUs supported are Radeon RX 460 Mobile, RX 560 Mobile, RX 570 Mobile, RX 580 Mobile, RX 550 based on Baffin LE. Minor bug-fixes include NVIDIA PerfCap sensor drawing outside its area; accuracy of temperature reading on AMD "Vega," a "BIOS reading not supported" error popping up on certain motherboards, and the driver digital signature reading getting truncated on high-DPI displays. Grab GPU-Z v2.8.0 from the link below.

not sure how recent the change is, but lookup takes me to the sapphire page now (well it goes to a page with 2 cards, AMD ref and Sapphire ref) good stuff :D

We're always working on improving lookup, it's a pretty monumental task adding support for all boards out there

I don't really mess with my GPU , so I don't use tools like this . That being said, I ALWAYS show some love for tools like this (Freeware FTW). I downloaded to check it out and it ooks great and shows me all I personally would ever need to know. Nice work team!
