TechPowerUp GPU-Z 1.9.0 Released

TechPowerUp today released the latest version of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem information, diagnostic, and monitoring utility that no enthusiast can leave home without. With the latest version 1.9.0, GPU-Z is out of "beta." We chose 1.9.0 over the more sequential 1.0.0 as it presents better continuity and averts the confusion of 1.0.0 (read 1.0) somehow sounding older.

Version 1.9.0 adds support for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, GTX 940MX, and GT 740 (GK107). On machines with GeForce "Pascal" GPUs, it can also tell if you have an SLI HB bridge installed in your machine or a classic SLI bridge. This way you know if your pre-built OEM has cut-costs. GPU-Z can now reliably extract video BIOS from AMD "Polaris" GPUs such as the Radeon RX 480. Improvements were made to the way it reads engine clock on AMD "Polaris" GPUs. All communication between GPU-Z and TechPowerUp servers (such as voluntary BIOS uploads, validations, etc.) now happens over secure HTTPS.

TechPowerUp Releases GPU-Z 0.8.8

TechPowerUp released the latest version of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsytem information, monitoring, and diagnostic utility that no PC enthusiast can leave home without. Version 0.8.8 adds a plethora of new user-interface features, and support for new GPUs. To begin with, we've consolidated all 'expert' features and settings into a convenient new "settings" dialog box, which appears when you click on the "hamburger" menu around the top-right corner of the main tab (next to the "screenshot" button). This is where you'll be able to configure how GPU-Z gets along with your machine, customize the "sensors" tab, and also use the refreshed "ASIC quality" information utility.

In addition to displaying your GPU's ASIC quality, GPU-Z now tells you how your ASIC compares to similar GPUs recorded in our GPU-Z validation database. GPU-Z can now read ASIC quality of AMD "Tonga" and "Fiji" GPUs. Support is added for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 980 (desktop on laptop), GTX 965M, 940M, 910M, GT 755M, Quadro M6000 24 GB, M4000M, K3100M, M500M, Tesla M40, and M60. GPU-Z can now correctly read BIOS from GPUs installed on motherboards/graphics cards with PLX PEX8747 PCIe bridge chips. Support is also added for Intel Iris Pro 530 "GT3e" graphics.

No Takers for VR: TechPowerUp New GPU Survey

The latest TechPowerUp front-page survey springs up some interesting findings on what our readers are most looking forward to, with the upcoming GPUs. Timed ahead of market availability of new GPUs from both NVIDIA and AMD, this poll gains relevance. At the time of writing of this article, we had received 4,650 votes over a week-long period, which amounts to a reasonable sample size. Some of the findings were surprising.

An overwhelming 60 percent of the respondents find price/performance most important. Interestingly, only 7 percent find efficiency/noise important. The second most popular choice, at 14 percent, was "4K Playability" (the ability for the GPU to play games at 4K Ultra HD resolution, at playable frame-rates). Our readers are seven times more likely to invest on 4K Ultra HD monitors (which start at $300 if you look in the right places), than picking up a VR (virtual reality) headset. A negligible 2 percent of our readers find VR most important.

TechPowerUp released the latest version of GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem information, monitoring, and diagnostic utility.

Among the bug fixes include improved Radeon Software version number detection, correct DirectX hardware-support readout on Intel "Skylake" IGPs, accurate 1.55V voltage reading for AMD "Fiji" GPUs in ULPS modes, a BSOD on Intel "Cloverview" Atom Z2760, SKU naming for AMD "Beema" chips; improved detection of CUDA devices running on Bus ID greater than 9, and a better explanation for OpenCL detection errors.

Dean "Kreij" Kortenhoven Memorial Competition

As many of you will know, back in June last year we lost our good friend and Senior Moderator Dean Kortenhoven, better known to us as Kreij to Cancer. For those of you that knew Kreij you will know that not only was he a leading light within this community but he was one damn fine human being. TPU, his family and anyone who knew him well are the poorer without him.

Kreij is remembered throughout our community in many ways, none more prominent than our Memorial build giveaways that not only support current members with the opportunity to win good quality hardware/systems (giveaway builds are geared to be able to game/crunch/fold well) but just as importantly to add more machines to the constant war against this ugly and hateful disease, for that we have our crunching/folding friends to thank as well as our outstanding TPU forum community, we thought it would be a good idea to compliment the existing memorials with something a little different in the form of a Christmas competition but with a little twist. The competition will involve a little writing but in return the winner will receive a graphics card kindly donated by our friends from XFX to whom we are very grateful.

More details and the competition opener will be published shortly, the final twist is that the competition will be hidden within an existing Kreij thread, so practice those forum searching skills to find and participate!Written by Tatty_One
