GPU Caps Viewer 1.8.6 with GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470 Support

GPU Caps Viewer with a GeForce GTX 470

A new version of GPU Caps Viewer is out! The main new feature of this version is the support of GeForce GTX 480 and GTX 470.

GPU Caps can now display the TDP (thermal design power) and the number of SMs (streaming multiprocessors – NVIDIA GeForce) or SIMD engines (AMD / ATI Radeon).

I also fixed a bug in the surface deformer OpenCL demo (see HERE for more information about the problem).

You can download GPU Caps Viewer 1.8.6 here (Win32 installer):

And if you have an OpenGL 4.0 driver like this Catalyst 10.3, you can display some OpenGL 4.0 data…

    Yay that’s cool.

    Now where is that Fluidmark 1.2 I wonder?

    Could I have a link for the beta at least?

    Did you take the Fermi scReenshot or did someone else?

    I feel jealous!

    Was just testing 1.8.6 on Cat10.5 & SDK2.1 on a HD4850.

    I now have the OpenCL Compilation error in the Mesh Deformer in both CPU/GPU.

    [CRITICAL]#00000064#Thu May 27 16:47:51 2010 #CL kernel compil error: C:\Users\*****\AppData\Local\Temp\ error: global
    variable must be declared in addrSpace constant
    } volatile float cs = 0.0f;
    C:\Users\******\AppData\Local\Temp\ warning: variable
    “cs” was set but never used
    float cs = 0.0f;
    1 error detected in the compilation of “C:\Users\*****\AppData\Local\Temp\”.

    Never had this error before. All other OpenCL Apps work fine.

    I’m currently struggling with Kombustor and D3D.
    As soon as it’s over (in few days I hope), I’ll release GPU Caps 1.8.8 (v1.8.7 is an internal version for me…).
