Submit

TechPowerUP's GPU-Z monitoring software has recently updated to version 2.42.0, opening support for newer graphics cards, such as the GeForce RTX 3060 with GA104 GPU, and also support for the new Intel Alder Lake processors that have embedded graphics controllers.

TechPowerUp Adds NVIDIA GeForce 'LHR' GPU Detection In Latest GPU-z Software Update

The twelfth generation Core series of CPUs are expected to "have built-in Xe-LP graphics" which are processing as high as 96 Execution Units (EU). Intel's desktop models that are appearing within the next several weeks are speculated "to feature up to 32 cores."

Along with support for Intel's Alder Lake CPUs and more recent graphics cards, GPU-Z has included "detection of the Lite Hash Rate models," due to having their own individual PCI Device IDs. The newest version of GPU-Z will be able to detect the specific card during it's monitoring procedures and will label those cards that it detects with the "LHR" designation, helping users to be able to distinguish graphics cards that are not clearly marked with Lite Hash Rate on the device, even if it is labeled as such on product packaging.
