TechPowerUP gets LHR detection, support for new GPUs
It has been a relatively quiet period for GPU enthusiasts, hence not many SKUs were added to GPU-Z software. Yet, there are a few new graphics solutions that have been added to GPU-Z 2.42.0, such as GeForce RTX 3060 with GA104 GPU, which we covered in this post.
More interestingly, the software will also support upcoming Intel Alder Lake CPUs, and more specifically their integrated graphics solutions. Intel 12th Gen Core series will have built-in Xe-LP graphics going all the way up to 96 Execution Units, but the desktop series that launch in the next few weeks is to feature up to 32 cores, rumors indicate.
A neat new feature is the detection of the Lite Hash Rate models, which basically have their own PCI Device IDs. The monitoring software will now add (LHR) to the product name should the card be detected as such. This should help easily identify the cards that otherwise have no clear marking, such as ‘LHR’ stickers on the packaging.
