still getting the error

This build fixes the "BIOS reading not supported" message on all ATI cards with 0.4.3
I'm still getting the "BIOS reading not supported on this device." message when I click on "Submit to online database".

I have an ATI FireGL V7200, BIOS Version, device ID 1002-7104, ati2mtag driver version 8.583.0.0. That machine is running Windows XP Pro SP3, 32-bit.

Hi i have been useing your program for sometime now and have always found it usefull when testing but on the lastest builds i have noticed some problems with the sensors on some older cards. The card i am useing at the moment is a AGP HIS ATI HD4670 1gb mem.
when i go check the sensor values the fan speeds are missing.
I would paste a image but I am sure how. I get 2 links for fan speed 1 says 0% then other says --RPM. Thanks :)
Tryed useing GPU-z 0.4.3 also 0.4.4

I've been using GPU-Z for a while now, and thanks for creating such a great program. This is feedback related to the 5970.

I tried this build to see if I could upload my 5970 BIOS files, but it only did it halfway.

The 5970 has two separate and different BIOSes, one for each GPU; one GPU is designated as Master, and the second as Slave. The BIOSes are distinct, and flashing the wrong GPU with the wrong BIOS will end up with a machine that won't boot to windows.

Neither this build nor the 0.4.5 build read the slave GPU bios correctly; it is just giving me the same BIOS number as the master BIOS, which is not correct and not the same.

By way of example, my current BIOSes are:

Part #: 113-C01OCM-AC1
Date: 2010/05/30

Part #: 113-C01OCS-AC1
Date: 2010/05/30

I would expect that selecting the second GPU listed in the GPU drop-down box within GPU-Z would display the Slave BIOS, but it does not.

Dear W1zzard !

My Mainboard is P5Q-E chipset P45. I have 2 VGA : HD4870X2 and PhysX GT240.

When using two VGA, PCIe slot bandwidth of HD4870X2 is x8 2.0, but GPU-Z 0.4.6 and all version GPU-Z reported x16 2.0

This is also the problem of GPU-Z for HD5970.

Could you fix this problem ?
