GPU-Z: New way to check if your card is genuine

TechPowerUp, the company that has created the GPU-Z program, released a new version of the program with a very useful feature. Now, through the GPU-Z, you can see if the graphics card it has is true or false.

GPU-Z

The release period of the new feature is not accidental. Until a while ago, there was a great shortage of graphics cards, which raised their prices excessively, sometimes two or even three times above the proposed selling price. The reason this sharp demand for graphics cards was due to mining, where miners bought as many high end graphics cards as possible.

As there was a high demand on high end cards, the cheaper ones were left on the shelves, and they decided enough to take advantage of. Buying cheaper models and flash-taking them, they greatly increased the prices and then resold them. So, as many models are the same in appearance, buyers could not understand that they were buying a high end card, a very low card.

But now with the GPU-Z it will be possible for each buyer to see if his card is flash-off or not. We can not know how big the problem so far has been, but with the release of its new generation of cards Nvidia, we believe that many will be 10xx users who will upgrade to 20xx, so maybe they try to "turn it" into a superior one.

Unfortunately, GPU-Z can only be used after the card has been applied to the buyer's system, so it may be too late. The GPU-Z feature is added by the 2.12.0 version, but it has already released one newest edition with additional bug fixes.
