Hey Tall Paul from Tennessee (tallpaultn) : Just wtF are you talking about?
CPUz will show you everything most users would ever need to know...ABOUT THE PROCESSOR.
GPUz, on the other hand, is made to show users what they need to know ABOUT THE GRAPHICS CARD(S).
The two are not interchangeable, nor do they even reflect information about similar parts. CPU = Processor, GPU = Graphics Card.

Does what it's supposed to, works great, and never, I mean NEVER has it locked up on a single system out of hundreds that I've run it on (IT/Remote Admin/Systems Admin/Computer Repair business)

Note for the Devs: PLEASE change the GUI for those of us that are running Crossfire/SLI so we can see temps/speeds/voltages of BOTH cards at the same time. PLEASE!

Same lock up here. I suspect it's driver conflicts with other hardware tweak utilities when run at the same time. With that suspicion, I stop & close the other hardware tweak utilities when I need to run GPU-Z. I've never had locks up since then. So I'll score it as 4 since it's a useful program.

"I am grateful for this program, but sometimes when I run it, my computer locks up. I rate it a four for now. XFX 8800 GTS 512 Alpha Dog XXX"

I had that happen with my new ATI 4830 using ver. 0.2.8 or 9. It now works with 0.3.0 but this latest version does not show my video card OC's. Over all a very good program to compliment cpuz.

Perhaps if you were to install Nvidia's drivers instead of using Microsoft's drivers it may report the correct timings on the clock.

Works ok, but 1.8 adds a kind of annoying splash screen. 1.7 did not have that, and I wish that it wasn't there.

But that's about all I can think of that I don't like about the program.

Still needs some work but getting better. 4 points for functionality and an extra point for tenacity. In spite of being put down for the name of the program and being told their app was garbage (it was), W1zzard and crew have hung in there and GPU-Z is getting better and better. Let this be a lesson to the folks who only complain instead of rolling up thier sleeves and lending freeware, often amature, authors a hand. Props to the folks who joined the techPowerUp forums and did just that.

On a side note: back in the day, I submitted a Phoenix (Firefox) nightly which had a malformed font tag that crashed X server and rebooted Linux machines. Apparently, that was considered impossible at the time but, I did it! Now, that takes talent. *laughs* So, cheers to all of the other amature Programmers out there and the folks who bork their boxen trying our stuff out. ;-)

Says it's disabled, I'm not sure if it says that because the detecting on the software is disabled or my sli config is. I know my configuration is on, both nvidia software and in-game detection says it's on.

This program always tries to update over the net when you run it. Even when you choose "never", it still attempts to check for an update.

Considering that it consists of an isolated executable, I don't see any way around this.

I don't do programs that update against my will, so I have to give this low marks.

This time it worked. Info not given were the following= Revision, Die Size, Memory Type, Shader. I suspect it would be because it's an onboard video card? Still this time, with all the info it gave I'll give it a 4.

Unknown architecture. :P My unknown computer is a Dell Optiflex GX280 and I'm using the onboard video! I guess it can recognize only one video card brand? I'm giving it a one simply because it doesn't need to install itself and I can't give it a zero. We really need a zero! :P

As for the name of the program here's what I found on their page. ".. and yes, the author of CPU-Z has granted us permission to use a name similar to his product. Thanks Franck."

hell0

hell0 reviewed v0.0.9 on Oct 22, 2007

The author of CPU-Z supposedly gave permission to use the name GPU-Z. I haven't verified this, but I assume it's true. Unless you get confirmation from the CPU-Z author that no such permission was given, stop whining about the name! If I were to make this type of utility, I might also use the same "GPU-Z", but I'd definitely ask permission. There's nothing wrong with it.

Only 3 because it still crashes sometimes on my system.

Ripping off a software's name is uncool, especially when it rips off such a nice author. Get your own name, dude.
