GPU-Z Ranked as One of the Most Essential PC Apps by Maximum PC

Maximum PC, a major computer player in both the cyber space and publishing media, has put together a list of what they think are the most essential PC apps every user of Windows ought to have installed. All 32 apps (except one) in the list are absolutely free for use. It's very important to mention that our GPU-Z utility is among them. Here's what Maximum PC has to say about GPU-Z:
Sure, you know you have a GeForce 295 card, but what do you know about it? If you want something that’ll brace the card for all of its specs, GPU-Z (no relation to CPU-Z) will do the dirty work for you. Offered for free by techpowerup.com, this handy utility will tell you the clocks, the card revision, the number of transistors on the card as well as the process technology used to build the card.
I would like to use this occasion to thank my boss and creator of GPU-Z W1zzard for all the good work he has done, and I think we all should be thankful for his efforts.Source: Maximum PC

W1z, you are a gentleman and a scholar, fantasic little app that i have used since version 0.1, when it already kicked ass and showed a huge amount of potential for what it has become today and what it will be towards the future.

i couldnt show off my beefy gfx subsystem without this app, and the monitoring goes without question, clocks, temps, volts, amps, it has it all.

hats off to my man W1z, you really do deserve it mate.

Woot!

I discovered techpowerup.com through something similar. Digit, an Indian tech print-magazine had a column about ATI Tool in a "overclocker essentials" article.

Congrats W1zz, GPU-z is a really good program. Lightweight, efficient, gives a lot of detail about graphics cards, but it doesn't bake cakes :ohwell:.

It is an excellent little tool, one I use daily. All we need is ATiTool back...
