TechPowerUp GPU-Z 2.30.0 Released

TechPowerUp today released the latest version of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem information and diagnostic utility. Version 2.30.0 introduces several new feature- and stability updates, and adds support for new GPUs. To begin with, support is added for AMD Radeon RX 590 GME, Radeon Pro W5500, Pro V7350x2, FirePro 2260, and Instinct MI25 MxGPU; Intel UHD (Core i5-10210Y), and a rare GeForce GTS 450 Rev 2. TechPowerUp GPU-Z 2.30.0 introduces support for reporting hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling in Windows 10 20H1 in the Advanced tab. The tab now also has the ability to show WDDM 2.7, Shader Model 6.6, DirectX Mesh Shaders, and DXR tier 1.1. A workaround for the DirectML detection on Windows 10 19041 built has been added. Graphics driver registry path is now displayed in the General section of the Advanced tab.

In the Sensors tab, the NVIDIA VDDC sensor has been renamed to "GPU voltage," and AMD's "GPU only power draw" sensor to "GPU chip-only power draw" to clarify that the sensor only measures the power draw of the GPU package and not the whole graphics card. AMD "Renoir" based processors and their iGPUs now show up as 7 nm. Windows Basic Display driver now no longer reports its status as WHQL or Beta. A crash during DirectX 12 detection has been fixed.

why would anyone need this clarification, the GPU is the silicon chip and not the video card

GPU's definition:
a single-chip processor with integrated transform, lighting, triangle setup/clipping and rendering engines that is capable of processing a minimum of 10 million polygons per second

I know that you know, but most people think "GPU" == "card", check on social media

and that's the problem, social media is not the tech industry - the GPU's definition has been around since 1990s

what's the next thing? calling the whole computer "the GPU" ......

Despite the fact that the "GPU" is indeed descriptive for graphics processing unit - the main chip itself, today you can have system-on-interposer with HBM and the whole thing could be taken as a "GPU".

Users' vocabulary changes over time, so adjustments and clarifications are needed.

Especially when it comes to just a single point of measurement which can be anywhere on the "GPU".

My mom still calls the tower the CPU. :laugh: Considering I've had family use stuff like GPU-Z or hwinfo for remote diagnostics, being super clear on stuff like that can't hurt. Not like it's going to confuse the tech-literate among us.
