3 – What is GPU Caps Viewer?

GPU Caps Viewer is a graphics card information utility focused on the OpenGL, OpenCL and CUDA API level support of the main (primary) graphics card. Even if you have several graphics cards in your system, only one is considered as the main OpenGL or Direct3D device. For OpenCL and CUDA, GPU Caps Viewer details the API support of each capable device available in the system. GPU Caps Viewer offers also a simple GPU monitoring facility (clock speed, temperature, GPU usage, fan speed) for NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon based graphics cards.

    Thanks for adding my request of selecting a GPU from the drop down

    i think the GPU selection drop down only works for SLI and crossfire. i am not able to see intel HD graphics in the drop down now but still it is detecting the driver details.

    i’ve ATi Mobility Radeon HD 5430 but How gpu caps viewer can’t report my gpu TDP, shader cores, memory types, and fan speed??

  5. Stefan

    afaik infos 1-3 rely on a database in combination with your device id

    fan speed should be displayed, your GPU is almost the same as my 5470 Mobility
    double-check with GPU-Z and/or Afterburner

    I just downloaded & ran GPU Caps viewer to see if my cards compatible for bitcoin mining but it’s not displaying anything on the GPU tab. Why?

    also what should I be looking for to see if it’s compatible for mining?

    @Kevin: bitcon needs OpenCL, then look at the OpenCL tab to see if your system has an OpenCL support. Now for your first question, seems there’s no graphics driver. If you can, try to put somewhere on the Net a screenshot of the first tab .

    I have bug report for you :-)

    I run GPU Caps Viewer on Samsung RV508 notebook (Intel GMA HD4500) and get empty “GPU” tab. Non of fields (GPU, shader cores, device id, driver) are filled.

    @nap: yep, due to the new GPU dropdown box (for Radeon and Geforce only), other cards have been a bit forgotten… It’s fixed in v1.14.1 that be be available very soon.
