GPU-Z and potential vulnerability to WHEA-Logger Event ID 18 Cache Hierarchy Error

For the GPU-Z development team - Hwinfo combined with latest AMD Adrenaline (>=20.11.2) driver on RDNA2 induced BSOD (WHEA-Logger Event ID 18 "Cache Hierarchy Error") on Zen 3 systems. See " https://www.reddit.com/r/AMDHelp/comments/l8i7re " and "https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/thread...s-on-amd-ryzen-systems.7041/page-4#post-29156" . Wanted to relay this to you, from the Hwinfo dev --> "
Would GPU-Z be affected by this as well, at least potentially? If so, do you have a contact there at techpowerup to let them know?
I don't think it is affected, but can't say for sure as I have no insight into its internals.
This issue was caused by a certain register access required for advanced GPU monitoring, which AFAIK no other (public) tool supports.
But I can't rule out that some other tool isn't using a similar register access for other purposes.
