A new version of GPU Caps Viewer (OpenGL, Vulkan, OpenCL and CUDA utility) is available.
1 – Overview
GPU Caps Viewer 1.34.0 adds the support of the latest GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, Radeon RX 580, RX 570 and RX 560 (based on Polaris 10/11 GPUs) as well as Radeon Pro WX 7100, WX 5100 and WX 4100.
New Vulkan and OpenGL demos (based on GeeXLab engine) have been added in the 3D demos panel:
All GeeXLab demos can now be launched using the command line:
GpuCapsViewer.exe /demo_win_width=1920 /demo_win_height=1080 /demo_fullscreen /run_gxl_demo=vk_shadertoy_geomechanical /benchmark_log_results /benchmark_duration=10000 /demo_msaa=0 /vk_gpu_index=0
Command line parameters can be found in the _run_geexlab_benchmark.bat file available in GPU Caps Viewer folder. The benchmark results are saved in a CSV file (_gxl_benchmark_results.csv).
Another change brought to GPU Caps concerns the UAC (User Account Control) execution level that has been reset to the default value (as invoker). The previous UAC level (administrator) didn’t work well with launching demos via the command line.
All Vulkan code has been recompiled with latest Vulkan headers (v1.0.45).
>> Update: 2017.06.29 <<
GPU Caps Viewer 18.104.22.168 is a maintenance release and comes with a better Vulkan support. The Vulkan field in the GPU tab is now updated according to the selected GPU. The Vulkan plugin of the GeeXLab SDK comes with an improved support of AMD and Intel GPUs and resizing of Vulkan demos has been fixed.
>> Update: 2017.04.29 <<
GPU Caps Viewer 22.214.171.124 is a maintenance release and comes with a new VK-Z version. VS2015 generates some strange patterns in the 32-bit version of VK-Z and no matter the way I compile VK-Z, the 32-bit version of VK-Z is still flagged as infected by some antivirus. The 64-bit version of VK-Z is clean so I just replaced the 32-bit version by the 64-bit one. GPU Caps Viewer has been updated to execute VK-Z x64 on Windows 64-bit only…
>> Update: 2017.04.26 <<
GPU Caps Viewer 126.96.36.199 is a maintenance release and improves the detection of recent AMD Radeon GPUs (RX 580, RX 570, RX 480 and RX 470). GPU Shark has been updated to version 0.9.11.4. VK-Z has been updated to version 0.6.0.5 32-bit (it has been recompiled with other compilation options in order to avoid false positive detection with antivirus. I really don’t understand this pesky problem!).
>> Update: 2017.04.16 <<
GPU Caps Viewer 188.8.131.52 is available with VK-Z 0.6.0.3. The previous 32-bit version of VK-Z was detected as infected by some antivirus scanners. Now VK-Z 32-bit is clean for Nod32, Avira, Avast, Kaspersky, AVG, Norton, and MacAfee.
>> Update: 2017.04.14 <<
GPU Caps Viewer 184.108.40.206 adds the support of NVIDIA TITAN Xp. GPU Shark and VK-Z have been updated to their latest versions.
>> Update: 2017.04.01 <<
GPU Caps Viewer 220.127.116.11 improves the detection of AMD Radeon GPUs in some systems that include Intel iGPU + AMD Radeon GPU. A new GeeXLab/OpenGL demo has been added (Alien Corridor).

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.
