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:
- GPU Usage
- GPU Temperature
- Core and Memory Clock Speed
- Fan Speed
- Frames per Second
- AND MORE
Updates for version 2.3 include:
- Small/Large (docked/undocked)
- Transparency (requires Aero theme)
- Value translation
- Purge monitor list
- Updated hardware acceleration bar (removed D3D & D3D8, added D3D11)
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.
