GPU Caps Viewer 1.33.0 Released (Updated: v18.104.22.168)
A new version of GPU Caps Viewer is available.
1 – Overview
GPU Caps Viewer 1.33.0 adds the support of some recent GPUs (NVIDIA GTX 1050 for notebook, Intel HD Graphics 630, and Radeon R7 M300 series) and fixes a crash in Vulkan demos (the Vulkan plugin of GeeXLab) with recent NVIDIA and AMD graphics drivers.
In the Vulkan API panel, a [VK-Z output] button has been added to display the full report of VK-Z:
I added this option because on some systems (like the ASUS GL553VD with a GTX 1050 + HD Graphics 630 where I installed the first Vulkan driver for Intel GPUs), GPU Caps Viewer is not able to see all Vulkan-capable GPUs. On the same systems, VK-Z is able to see all Vulkan devices. The Vulkan code to enumerate Vulkan GPUs is the same in GPU Caps Viewer and in VK-Z. But in GPU Caps Viewer, something prevents the correct enumeration.
All Vulkan code has been recompiled with latest Vulkan headers (v1.0.42).
Update (2017.03.06): GPU Caps Viewer 22.214.171.124 fixes a bug in the Vulkan initialization code that could produce a crash on some configurations with no Vulkan support.

3 – What is GPU Caps Viewer?
GPU Caps Viewer is a graphics card information utility focused on the OpenGL, Vulkan, OpenCL and CUDA API level support of the main (primary) graphics card. For Vulkan, 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. GPU data can be submitted to an online GPU database.
