In the latest version 2.51.0, the popular GPU tool GPU-Z has a function to monitor the problematic 12VHPWR connector on the GeForce RTX 40X0 (“Nvidia Ada Lovelace”) series of graphics cards. Meanwhile, the manufacturer tries to downplay the problem and blames the users.
GPU-Z can now monitor the 12VHPWR connector
While Nvidia blames melting or even burning 12VHPWR connectors on poorly closed 12+4-pin connectors and thus tries to shift the responsibility onto the user, CPU-Z developers now have a monitoring feature built into their tools.
As with the familiar 6/8-pin PCIe connectors, GPU-Z can now read and record input power flowing through the new 16-pin connector. However, the actual problem is not solved by the function.
Support for the GeForce RTX 4080
In addition to the monitoring function for the 12VHPÜWR connection of the GeForce RTX 4090 (test) and GeForce RTX 4080 (test), which is officially supported for the first time, GPU-Z 2.51 offers innovations in the areas of DLSS, Vulkan and OpenCL. Also, fixed an issue with “Glenfly Advanced Panel” for China Zhaoxin Glenfly Arise GT GPU.
