What is GPU Caps Viewer?

GPU Caps Viewer is a graphics card information utility focused on the OpenGL, OpenCL and CUDA API level support of the main graphics card. Even if you have several graphics cards in your system, only one is considered as the main OpenGL or Direct3D device. For OpenCL and CUDA, GPU Caps Viewer details the API support of each capable device. More information about GPU Caps Viewer can be found HERE.

GPU Caps Viewer 1.9.3 changelog

  • New: added support of AMD Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850.
  • New: added support of NVIDIA GeForce GT 430, and GT 440.

I’d like to thank ASUS for the EAH6870 sample, that allowed me to test and update GPU Caps Viewer.

    I see it still says mem type unknown for radeon cards with GDDR5

    hmmm is it only the 68xx series that support OpenGL and GLSL 4.1 or is that a product of the update showing what came with CAT 10.10

  4. JeGX Post Author

    OpenGL 4.1 is for HD 5000 and HD 6000 series.

    The mem type is still unknown because I use a function exposed by Catalyst driver that is not implemented. So as soon as the Catalyst driver team will update this function, you’ll see a nice “GDDR5″…

    cheers JeGX not that it worries me overly as i know what my card has on it 😉

    just one other little thing I thought you might like to know 1.93 reports only 19 wgl extensions but i counted 20 in the show all list / list only supported


  6. JeGX Post Author

    @Athlonite @stefan: bug fixed in ZoomGPU. I will release a new GPU Caps asap with GTX 580 experimental support…

  7. Athlonite

    Try the pulldown menu in GLVIEW and watch how the numbers of extensions change.

    The number still says 19 but a manual count shows 20
