Is there a particular reason why ATI GPU Memory Usage isn't reported on Vista & XP Machines with GPU-Z 0.5.9?
I have a Win 7 machine with an HD5770 where it is reported, 171Mb to 650Mb being typical Dedicated Memory Usage with the OpenCL apps i run,
but other's running the same apps on Vista Machines can't see their Memory Usage with GPU-Z,

I think memory usage monitoring requires WDDM 1.1 (introduced with W7)

So is there any alternate ways of getting GPU memory usage reported?

Can it be done with ADL_SDK_3.0, CAL, OpenCL or OpenGL instead?
