Hi,

As my first post, I need to say a big thanks for such an amazing tool.

I noticed that running the version 2.34(never tried the others) using the command line -minimized under the System context (or any other user context) with the following settings on a Windows 7 box it doesn't fetch the GPU temperature sensor:

[GPU-Z]

Windows 7 output:

However, the same config on a Windows 10 box using the same hardware or interactively starting up the application on the Windows7 device it works.

My end goal is to programmatically capture that data to monitor the health of my systems, but that behavior is confusing me, any help is highly appreciated.

Device info(taken remotely, also cant provide clock values):

Matrox uses the AMD chipset as you can see, for instance, if install the regular AMD drivers it will work flawlessly and show as a different card. Matrox is just like Saphire and other brands.

Could be, but years ago it was not -- they had their own brand & own GPUs. :)

Ah, never had a chance to test GPU-Z on one of the newer Matrox cards.

Any way I could use Teamviewer to test a few things on that machine?

W1zzard, did Matrox switch from own/proprietary GPUs exclusively to AMD/Nvidia offerings now? :)
If so, it might make sense to mention Matrox as supported kind of GPUs alongside NVIDIA, AMD, ATI and Intel in GPU-Z webpage too.
What do you think, please?
