(Download) GPU-Z 0.5.8 Released, New Render Test for PCI-Express Bus and ASIC Quality Feature

GPU-Z 0.5.8

This new version of GPU-Z includes a render test (not a stress test) to put a small graphics load in order to accurately measure the PCI-Express bus configuration. Just read the explantion on the screenshot right above. The following screenshot shows the render test:

Th other new thing in GPU-Z 0.5.8 is the ASIC quality feature for recent GeForce GTX 400/GTX 500 and Radeon cards. In short, GPU-Z can quantify the quality of the GPU (which depends on the electrical leakages). For exemple on my MSI GeForce GTX 460 Cyclone:

I will test this features on other cards asap!

You can find the ASIC quality menu here:
