Hello!

I didn't have GPU-Z installed for a while but when I redownloaded it, it had a strange property - if trying to move GPU-Z window with mouse. the GPU-Z window is moving like in slow motion rubberband mode.
If I move it around wor a few seconds then it takes some time to move to the final place. Rubberbanding explains the effect the best.
I tried older versions too, installed and uninstalled versions and it all happens only with GPU-Z no other program.
Any insight appreciated!

No MS Office
And no, absolutely no other program (I have maybe close to 30-40 installed) has the same "rubberbanding"

Nice system.

Right click the exe and properties. Make sure the settings are correct. Maybe some box got checked by accident.

Everything is as it should be in my opinion. And as I said tried many different versions of GPU Z and all act the same.
It's somewhat funny, as the longer I move the window around the longer the window moves around the screen after I release the mouse key ... some 3 seconds even, and it moves very fluidly btw.

The reason i asked about excel is that it uses hardware acceleration and does the same laggy, smooth, the longer you drag it the longer the delay lasts behavior.

GPU-Z doesnt do it on my system but some apps that use hardware accel do (spotify, excel).

Do you have a screenshot of your GPU-z you can post?

Sure I can upload a screenshot:

I tried making a video with Bandicam, but it does not show the point when I release the mouse button and the window moves on.

You sir have found one of the rarer bugs with windoze.

:p congrats and welcome to TPU!

Try with a mouse polling rate of 500hz and see if it still does it. It could just be one cause of it, but different things work for different people (compatibility mode etc.)

I've never had this with GPU-z; trying to reproduce...

Thank you for all your help!

When mouse set to 500Hz polling rate - no rubberbanding.
Forgot to mention that I do have a cheapish chinese mouse at this moment. Tecknet M009.
So it's probably mouse software issue, not GPU-Z.

Checking the background - though I bought it from Aliexpress it might not be chinese...

Lol yes.
I have a Red Dragon-Griffin mouse and it does this to.
Wonder if it uses the same crappy China software.

Well, I think it was some driver settings that caused the thing. Tried with another mouse, still the bug was there.
Uninstalled the drivers, restarted pc and reinstalled the software and the problem is gone (for the moment?).

OK, restarting the PC again, reintroduced the bug. I might have had 500Hz before restart though. Not 100% certain.

I think it has to do with the way windows buffers the USB polling/IO but it's pretty rare and only some apps do it (I still can't get GPU-z to do it on my system; tried everything)...

I've noticed it's only applications with embedded graphics (so a blank excel workbook won't do it for me); so it seems to be a pretty narrow combination of things that make it happen.

Regardless buy a reputable mouse.

Also i guess you use a igp and not a gpu?

I do use GTX 1070 not iGPU
Also have a MSI Clutch GM40 mouse which is somewhat more reputable but responds the same. And have some other mice but I suspect it's not hardware related problem.


Ha. I edited before this post, that latest 10 Insider build fixed the problem. But after restart the problem was back also lost about 1/4 of GPU capability - Fire strike 12000 instead of 17000
Reverted back to older build.
So I don't recommend 19002.1 build. But thats another matter.


Edit again - the rubberbanding did go away after couple restarts. Still Windows 10 Pro Build 18999.1

Well "good" news - not only GPU-Z has the problem, now on latest 10 insider build 19013.1000 - and CPU-Z windows has even longer "rubber band" and even with 500Hz usb polling rate!
