    Got bored today, so I took a shot at redesigning GPU-Z based on Microsoft's Fluent Design Language. I made two concepts, one is based on how GPU-Z looks today, the other is a complete re-make.

    Just thought it would be interesting to see how it looked. :)

    EDIT:
    Just to answer the concerns below. This was made using Adobe XD. No GPU-Zs were harmed (modified) during the making of these concepts.

    Also, added some refined concepts below.

    Did you get permission from @W1zzard to modify his code or GUI for it?

    I like the new classic.. not so much the modern.

    Graphs are big......


    Looks like a great facelift to me, the classic.




    You should do this to cpuz......

    Ok? Sorry for intruding however W1zzard owns the software and is his IP.

    And? The OP clearly stated he was just interested in doing it out of curiosity with no intent to distribute or appropriate the IP or claim that his creation is anything but a what-if rendering of GPU-Z using modern language. Either complement or critique his work or just say nothing at all. I personally think all of his mock-ups look great and that he did a wonderful job!

    Things have to be done right here. How'd you feel if someone did something to what you created without your authorization?

    Wouldn't matter to me if it was done in a manner similar to the OP. You seem like your just looking to complain about anything honestly. Do you fuss at people who do song covers, fan art, fan fiction? People these days are always looking for something to make an issue out of where none exists.

    Edit: Also see W1zzard's own words on this. 4th post in.

    I can give you a few proposals i gave W1zzard back in 2014 when i took over the database

    doubt W1zzard will do this 99.9% because he wants the compact look and in that compact space nothing else can be arranged
    not to say in the future he wont change his mind.

    Well, since I'm not an a-hole, as long as they aren't doing it for personal gain, I'd thank them.

    Personally. Adding my legitimate 2C here. I like the fluent design elements. However as with @EarthDog I like the first more. But I also really like the second.

    You want to know what kills the second for me? The same as Earth. the graphs. It goes a bit deeper though. to radeon Re-live driver CP. I absolutely HATE horizontal windows. It uses a tremendous amount of space that no matter the application fails to resize for whatever reason.

    This goes beyond this example and even AMD drivers. but to what I consider at this point normal metro design. Lets take the windows calculator meme as an example. Everyone who gets it knows exactly what I'm saying.

    [​IMG]

    The problem is that I believe Fluent and "Metro" attempt to play towards humans handling horizontal space in their daily lives. from books to video, credit cards etc alot of our interaction is horizontal and I dont mean reading. I mean the consumption of data inside of a space.

    However thats where the problem I think people are missing lies. Computers in general from websites to scripting, sorting through lists and processing formula is all done vertically. This makes fluent design nice to look at but difficult to use.

    I often find myself unsure how to find an element or confused as to why something is portrayed so large. Maybe if a designer could make fluent design elements in a package that is more slender in usable space but just as pleasing to the eye I would bite. but alas.

    We currently have and are offered

    1200x1600 massive boxes of jumbled information.

    Way too big, would not be able to show all the sensors for my card.

    Nice to see another design although GPU-z to me is fine how it is., but would be nice for those who want a change or some thing.

    Similar to how I feel about current widescreens in general. The move away from 16:10 to 16:9 made sense from a business perspective(more $$ in their pockets), put completely puzzled me on how consumers in general welcomed this change with open arms since nearly everything non-video related is presented and navigated in a vertical bias thus losing out on verticality means losing usable and practical space. I guess not seeing black bars when watching a movie once and a while beats having less of a page on screen and more frequent scrolling.

    my proposal was to have a layout around this
    Shaders: 3584
    TMUs: 224
    ROPs: 88

    my ocd flips out at
    88 / 224
    3584
