TechPowerUp GPU-Z v2.36.0 Released

TechPowerUp today released the latest version of TechPowerUp GPU-Z, the definitive graphics sub-system information, monitoring, and diagnostic utility for PC gamers, enthusiasts, and overclockers. The new version 2.36.0 adds support for new GPUs, and introduces many new fixes. For starters, it improves support for AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800, and adds support for BIOS extraction from RDNA2-based graphics cards. Support is added for the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, GeForce MX 450, Quadro RTX 6000 Mobile; Intel Xe MAX, Xe Pod, Xe SG-18M, and several other new Intel GPUs; and AMD Radeon Pro VII, HD 8550D, and Barco MXRT 5600. Support is also added for the EVGA iCX sensor suite on the company's latest RTX 30-series graphics cards.

Among the other things we improved are temperature reading support for AMD "Zen 3" processors, fixed ROP counts on Radeon RX 6800 series graphics cards, support for the new XFX sub-vendor ID, fixes to reported memory size on certain NVIDIA cards, clock-speed reading on NVIDIA "Ampere" cards with no drivers installed; and a BSOD error with Windows Code Integrity enabled. Grab GPU-Z from the link below.

@Durvelle27 can you download this and look at your memory clock? mine never downclocks. is that normal? my gpu clock still downclocks when idle or based on usage.

also what is your hotspot temp? mine hits 85 celsius sometimes, kind of worries me. but gpu temp itself doesn't break 65. i really wish they never showed us hotspot temps, now I am going to constantly trying to be figuring out ways to bring that down.

Sounds like you may be running into either the multi-monitor "bug" or the drivers are not reading the monitor's EDID correctly. How many monitors are connected, and what are their refresh rates?

check if reducing the refresh rate temporarily helps

yep that fixed it. 144hz fixed it, 165hz and problem came back

i will just leave it at 165hz and ignore it for now

Post it on AMd official community as driver big, keep a tab on it and hopefully they will fix it

Is that 165 Hz enabled as "Overdrive" in your monitor's settings?

Thanks a lot for the updated version that supports RX6800XT. :cool:

On my 6800XT, the junction temperature was hitting 95°C in Firestrike Extreme Stress test.
By default the fan is configured to run max 50% when junction temperature hits 95°C.
I changed the profile to go step by step towards 100% with max temp allowed 95°C.
After that the fan was going towards 80% and max junction temperature remained below 88°C.
The noise of the fan was not annoying to me.
It is hidden behind noise of 6 EK fans on my watercooling loop. :laugh:
At the moment that loop is overkill for just 5800X until I get EK waterblock for 6800XT. :p
If I get my waterblock next week, I will be able to significantly reduce the temps on junction.

On my Radeon VII, I had max GPU temp of 42°C and junction lower than 80°C with waterblock. :D
With reference cooler there the junction temperature was hitting 110°C all time and GPU was throttling. :mad:

Nice! I have access to all EVGA FTW3 sensors now!

Thank you W1zzard!!

it is not. its a native 165hz panel. no overdrive options in monitor menu. this is a fairly new monitor, new IPS panel as well. so issues are to be expected. I will submit report to AMD via the driver report bug.

@turbogear yeah I increased fans as well, and now my junction doesn't go above 73 celsius or so. and card doesn't go above 60 celsius... this was in 3 hrs of Jedi Fallen gameplay last night... so yeah I am quite happy. and I agree the reference model fans are not very loud at all. lovely card. truly well designed.

Yup, if support asks for the EDID, you can extract it using CRU. I did that when I had a 5700 XT and a Dell monitor that had overdrive.

Can confirm the same with my RTX 3080. Thanks @W1zzard

Use the built in Bug Report Tool I have a “special“ one that I use my “ID” to file reports but it’s the same tool and the same people see it.

With your custom black plate thermal paste mod, I highly doubt you will ever run into thermal issues.

Just keep dust away from it and you will be all good.
