An updated version of the GPU-Z tool is now released, featuring both new features and improved stability.
Most exciting is the ability to detect fake Nvidia graphics cards.
False graphics cards pretend to be more powerful than they really are. Potentially, you may think that you have the latest Nvidia graphics card, but in fact, have an old card.
The cheaters do this by manipulating the BIOS in the cards, so they are tricked into providing information other than that that is correct.
The latest version of the program, v2.12.0 can detect any of such fake Nvidia cards.
Supported GPUs: G84, G86, G92, G94, G96, GT215, GT216, GT218, GF108, GF106, GF114, GF116, GF119, and GK106.
The feature should also work with any new fake cards in the future.
Not sure if you have a genuine product? Run the program and press «Lookup». If you have a fake card, a yellow triangle and the word "Fake" will appear on the screen.
