The VGA information tool that knows all

| Software News | Posted: Apr 7, 2010 9:46 am

Our Download of the Day today is GPU-Z 0.4.2.

 

TechPowerUp today released version 0.4.2 of the GPU-Z graphics subsystem information and monitoring utility. This release comes quicker than its typically one-month development cycle, as it fixes some important issues. Version 0.4.2 resolves an issue with some NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards where GPU-Z may affect fan-speed control. It fixes a rare crash on MSI R5830 Twin Frozr II graphics card, and reverts to its old method of calculating graphics card memory bandwidth which caused some confusion among the enthusiast community. The ongoing Hardware Giveaway stays, giving you a chance to win some groovy ASUS Republic of Gamers series graphics cards and motherboards.

The latest version includes the following changes:

 

Changes in Version 0.4.2

 

• Fixed an issue on all NVIDIA cards that would sometimes cause them to lose fan control when GPU-Z is running. Please don't run pre-0.4.2 and 0.4.2 at the same time, this might result in incorrect readings in the 0.4.1 window.

 

• Fixed system crash on MSI HD 5830 TwinFrozr II

 

• Validation upload now uses Unicode for entered name

 

• Reverted memory bandwidth calculation introduced in last version. It introduces too much confusion, we will go with what all companies use in their marketing material, even though we believe it is not correct. Using power of 10 again now, 1 GB/s = 1,000,000,000 Bytes per Second.
