GPU Caps Viewer
Find out the gory low-level details about your graphics card's support for OpenGL, OpenCL and CUDA

GPU Caps Viewer is a free, portable graphics card information tool with a strong focus on developer-level OpenGL, OpenCL and CUDA-related details.

The program's GPU tab has useful hardware details which will appeal to any knowledgeable user, though: your GPU model, memory size and type, BIOS version, current temperature, fan speed and clock rates, voltages, driver details and more.

But then life begins to get rather more complex. So you can view your OpenGL version, for instance; low-level CUDA details like warp and grid sizes, block dimensions and more; and an OpenCL report detailing the drive version, global and local memory amounts, samplers, OpenCL extensions and more.

And you even get a Shader Validation option where the program will check the compilation of any type of GLSL shader - vertex, pixel (or fragment), geometry, tessellation control and evaluation - to make sure that all is well.

There's just about enough useful options here for the program to be appealing to regular users, though, too. If you're having problems running OpenGL or OpenCL software, for instance, then GPU Caps Viewer includes a few demos you can use to test your setup. There's no need to understand the low-level technical details, just choose a demo from the list and watch to see if it works (or not).

Version 1.42.0

Verdict:

GPU Caps Viewer provides a host of low-level data regarding your graphics card(s). It's targeted at developers, but may also appeal to expert users: if you've overclocked your card, say, the program will help you monitor how it's doing.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
