Just thought I would post an update to this. Last week Microsoft went into great detail about the evolution of Fluent Design in the Outlook app for Windows. One of their concepts included a colored top bar to "align more to the Outlook brand", and I thought this would be interesting to apply to the GPU-Z concept.

Gamers are typically very proud of their GPU choice, either from Team Red or Team Green, so it would be fitting for GPU-Z to reflect that in a more prominent way based on the detected GPU. There would also a blue accent (not pictured) for integrated Intel GPUs.

There are other minor changes made like moving all the function buttons to a bottom bar to keep things a little more organized, and I included the new Radeon badge.

Again, just a reminder, these are purely conceptual designs. Think Photoshop (although its actually Adobe XD) :)

I aboslutely love the green on black for the nvidia card's dark theme. I want this like now.

this is all hypothetical because gpu-z has no skin interface everything is hard coded

That's why I've put the "" , I know it has to be re-written to implement these changes

even if w1z didn't want to make any changes to the dated, drab UI, I would still accept @Fahad's ideas for a complete overhaul to fit with 2018's trend. Who wouldn't want a brand new UI & elements that perfectly fits with a new OS?

If change is what it sorely needs, why wanna debate about it just because a raw concept of how or what to expect in the future? Why fear it?

Lots of people would not want this. :)
If it ain't broken (it is not), don't fix it. :) I hate the lack of indentations in these mockups, for example.
I agree the current window size is too small for 2018 displays. Should be larger now, or customizable is even better.

For customizable window sizing, see how CrystalDiskMark does it. :)
