GPU-Z Scaling Problem.jpg

I use Windows 10 / 11 in 4K with 175 % scaling. Most APPs are scaling properly. Not GPU-Z (look above @ picture). Is it possible in the near future, that the GUI of GPU-Z will be redone (by erasing the hardcoded / fixed gui-elements...) for better scaling compatibility? 4K displays and their native screen resolutions need better scaling compatibility.

Thanks! Will investigate

Yeah I've been toying with the idea of making a .NET WPF version, which of course would break compatibility with other operating systems

Windows GPU scaling is a huge pain that keeps coming back to bite everyone

Don't want to be that grave digger, but it seems this issue was not solved yet. At least when it comes to ROG version, which is the one with dark mode support. In 4k screen, 175% scaling, ROG version does not show all Sensor details, even with "System (enhanced)" DPI scaling set in app properties. The default GPU-Z apparently does not have this issue, even without any DPI scaling settings set.

I am software developer, so I know there may be no easy fix for this, but maybe a quick fix would be to enable window resizing in ROG version?
