TechPowerUp Releases GPU-Z 2.15.0, Features Hardware Giveaway in Partnership with PowerColor!

TechPowerUp today released the latest version, 2.15.0, of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem information and diagnostic utility. This brings along with it support for AMD's Radeon RX 590 GPU, two reviews of which can be seen here and here for those interested. In addition, GPU-Z 2.15.0 adds support for Intel Whiskey Lake, UHD Graphics 617, and NVIDIA Tesla V100-SXM2-32GB along with minor bug fixes including detection of certain Quadro cards as fake, as well as an updated Vega 20 release date.

While this alone is plenty to merit an update, there is a special giveaway added to this version. Indeed, to the left of the "Close" button at the bottom is a temporary button that opens up a giveaway window listing a collaboration with PowerColor enabling users to potentially win the following (one per winner):
  • 2x PowerColor Radeon RX 590 Red Devil
  • 2x AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
  • 15x $30 Steam Wallet Coupon
The terms and conditions can be found in GPU-Z again, but know that the contest runs through Dec 6, 2018 and you will have to enter via the form in the utility itself. The full change log can be found in the download link seen below, and do let us know what you feel about integrating our giveaways with our utilities in the comments section below.

I'd rather you put the giveaway on both the site and integrated in the utility itself. If it stays this way not many people will actually know about the giveaway, I mean sure the odds are higher for those in the know but I'm guessing the goal of the giveaways is to advertise the product as well. And thanks for the giveaway.

The button isnt there on the rog version
Maybe conflict of brand (PowerColor branding in an ASUS-branded product). Please use the non-branded version.

I told them guys in the survey to put a black or red I/O panel on the card. That would look sweet. Otherwise, I'm always raving about how long my Powercolor 3870 lasted... It was such a plain card though, not much like today's beasts.

Participated, thanks for update and giveaway! I suggested to provide bios updates for their gpus as this is not what you can see often (if at all) from powercolor unless i missed something. I haven't owned any gpu from power color yet but their devil edition cards look beasty, i consider one of these on future upgrade for sure.

Yeah, powercolor competition in asus branded gpuz didn't sound like a good idea to me

Thats a fair and valid point and powercolor might not be so happy about it either any way.

you would think as long as gpu-z been out / around they would have a handful of skins to choose from outside of branded/ asus rog and default ? [maybe a tool for a u make custom skin to also be uploaded to a approved list of choices ]

Totally entered, thank you
fingers crossed and all that

My suggestion for Powercolor was Waterblocks on their cards, especially those Devil versions.

I also finally signed up to the forum after being a passive reader for a very long time.

Cheers guys.

what would you like to see improved with powercolor cards ?

hmmmm.... with the ones I had [1] . warrantee 3-5 year over there down to the sec. and there done with you 2 year . [2 ] . better then powerlogic fans used . [evga the same ] don't think my cards made 3 years they nailed it just right

notice here they say just 1 year global or us/ca ? that's worse then my cards [6850 and 7850 ]

[pretty vague on models coverage ]
https://www.powercolor.com/rma

not to say they were good cards wile they lasted , just hope you get one to last a good 2 years [luck of the draw I guess ] you'll know when or if you need to call them on a issue how your standing with them .


its hard to knock a free bee if you win . there worth it as that fer sur .

can you enter this contest with out installing the latest gpu-z ? its not like most really need it if nothing new is supported over a older one

That's how it is designed btw, some people wanted an installer, but personally I use it portable all the time, just copying the exe around
