There is already a "GPU Load" graph in GPU-Z which is very useful ("Sensors" tab), but I would also like to see how efficiently my video card's memory is being used, is this possible? If so is it a feature intended for an upcoming build?

Also, there are 2 labels with the identical name of "Fan Speed". Since the first shows fan speed in % and the second in RPM, it would be nice to change the labels to reflect this, i.e. "Fan Speed %" and "Fan Speed RPM" respectively.

not possible until amd adds memory usage reporting to their drivers

Hey, I just registrate to post this reply.

If anyone can add a "Memory Consumption" display, it will be very cool!

And yes it should be possible to make this working (See OpenCL)

Ati has published a tool which can display vRAM Consumption named ATI Memory Viewer.

http://www.amd.com/us/products/workstation/graphics/tools/pages/tools.aspx

So it must be possible to implement this in GPU-Z

PS.: If you have winxp you can also use ATI Tray Tools to Display Used vRAM.
If you have a newer sys there is only ATI Memory Viewer (which cant display used memory on my g15 :-/ )

Just tryed the AMD tool but it just sits at 35Mb's used, I have dirt 2 running and the memory useage dont move. It looks like this tool will only work with firepro GPU's.

I concur with animal007uk. I believe only FirePro/FireGL cards are supported.

I noticed the program (x64 version) loads OpenGL, ADL, Crossfire/OpenGL drivers and these other dlls:
atig6pxx.dll
atig6txx.dll

I didn't check the exports of the other dlls but I think they're all related to OpenGL.
