Version 2.0 of the GPU Monitor sidebar gadget is now available. This version adds extensive user customization options.
This application is a Vista Sidebar Gadget that uses Rivatuner's low level hardware monitor for stats. I've finally released it on Microsoft's site. If your Rivatuner install is reporting back values that you would like to see in the sidebar, then install this gadget and have it easily accessible.
Values will vary depending on the model card you have and its capabilities.
Values capable of being displayed include, but are not limited to:
Core and Memory Clock Speed
Frames per Second
** Add CPU, RAM, HDD and additional data with RivaTuner plugins
General options and features:
Colors: background, border, title text, default monitor title/value/units text
Title: customize the text and icon
Filter to remove RivaTuner's monitors from display in the gadget
Flyout window provides additional information from RivaTuner and WMI
Ability to reset min/max values
You can also customize each monitor's display individually:
Colors: use default or override title/value/units text
Bar: specify min/max limits as well as color change limits
Choose from 10 different display styles
Choose from 20 different icons
Change displayed monitor title text
Add a separator to help group similar monitors
Copy settings from 1 monitor to another with control over what is pasted
Read the help tab in the gadget config for explicit instructions and configuration information. We have a thread open on this tool (visited by programmer) right here.
