Editors' Review

GPU-Z provides easy access to comprehensive information about your GPU and video card.

Pros

Streamlined presentation: It may not have the most attractive interface, but GPU-Z's small tabbed window presents its information in a straightforward, easy-to-read way. The information, which ranges from the BIOS version to the memory type and size, is shown as soon as you launch the software, and you don't have to do anything else but view that data. The only user options are to adjust the sensor refresh rate, along with two checkboxes, one to refresh the screen while GPU-Z is in the background and one to log data to a file.

Install options: As soon as you open the GPU-Z file, you'll have the option to run it without installation or choose to install it, so you'll have Start menu access.

Cons

Not useful for everyone: This isn't a tool for the novice. There's no Help file and no explanation for the information you see. If you don't know what Texture Fillrate means or why you should care about it, GPU-Z isn't a software you need.

Bottom Line

If you want a cheap way to check up on your graphics card and GPU, GPU-Z is a good option. It doesn't offer any extras, but it does give you a quick way to get this information in one place.

"A great source for info"

February 09, 2015  |  By zoorick

 |  Version: GPU-Z 0.8.0

Pros

Delivers what it promises. A must have program for GPU info.

Cons

As somebody here had already mentioned, it should be merged with CPU-Z. And, as usual, better instal it from the official site.

"Unnecessary since there exists NVIDIA system tools"

November 09, 2014  |  By dppds

 |  Version: GPU-Z 0.7.9

Pros

It does what it promises, it's actually an analog of CPUz.

Cons

It seems old and it is only for reference purposes. The user cannot copy a single amount of information.

Summary

NVIDIA already shows up in it's custom control panel many of the information that gpuz gathers. If the user needs more information he could download NVIDIA's system tools which provides the same info and of course let's the user make his custom settings.

"If you've got a weekend to kill..."

August 17, 2014  |  By Blenderhedd

 |  Version: GPU-Z 0.7.8

Pros

Will actually give you GPU info.

Cons

Installs iwebar (and a couple other things, I think) tool bar that will require a system restore to rid yourself of. Doesn't ask you. Just installs it.

Summary

I used this in the past and it was useful. Somebody decided that a couple pennies per install was worth ruining their reputation. Stay away from this app.

"I think it's essential"

March 20, 2012  |  By jandsm5321

 |  Version: GPU-Z 0.5.9

Pros

Tells me information that nothing else did. Has graphs so you can monitor GPU, VRAM, Temperature usage over time.

Cons

I wish it was merged with CPUZ so I didn't need to open two programs.

Summary

I used it to see if it was time for a CPU or Video card upgrade. Most of my games only used about 30% of the GPU so it was apparent a newer video card won't make things run faster at the moment. Time for a new CPU!

"Extremely Useful Tool"

February 24, 2012  |  By Jason83

 |  Version: GPU-Z 0.5.9

Pros

Small compact one file program. Very simple to use and see all the info (and more) that you ever needed to know about your graphics card.

Cons

None. Very useful and easy to use.

Summary

Downloaded this to try and find out why my Radeon 4870 was overheating. Thanks to the detailed split of the GPU temperature sensors, it pointed to poor thermal paste application, which I was able to rectify quickly and easily. Now my card runs much cooler (and quieter) and should last longer.

"Simple, works great, very detailed info!"

January 26, 2012  |  By jandsm5321

 |  Version: GPU-Z 0.5.8

Pros

Shows me everything I would need to know about my video card plus things I didn't know I would want to know. Includes graphs to show usage history such as GPU load, temperature, and memory usage.

Also it doesn't need installed, just a stand alone program.

Cons

Nothing whatever!

Summary

If you're into overclocking and such I imagine this tool would be invaluable!

If you just need to know something about your video card, get it!
