GPU-Z
Easily monitor your GPU load, temperature, fan speed and more

GPU-Z is an interesting system information tool that tells you everything you'll need to know about your graphics card and GPU. (Despite the name and appearance, it has no connection to the CPU-Z program.) And we do mean everything.

So you don't just get the basic details, like your graphics adapter model, memory driver and clock speeds. The program will also report on the GPU revision, die size and number of transistors. It'll tell you the DirectX version supported by the card, mention the type of RAM it uses, provide performance details like the pixel and texture fill rate, and highlight the driver version you're using, for example. (If you want to keep this information for reference later, the camera icon top-right will save a screenshot.)

GPU-Z also includes a handy monitoring section, that tracks details like your core, memory and shader clock speeds, GPU and PCB temperatures, fan speeds, memory use, GPU load, memory controller load and more, which could be very useful if you've overclocked your card and want to confirm that it's still stable.

And while the straightforward interface doesn't exactly look weighed down with options, the program is actually quite configurable. Check the arrow to the right of each attribute and you can tell GPU-Z to monitor it (or not), and whether you'd like to see the current, lowest, highest or average reading. And if you check "Log to file" then your temperatures, fan speeds and so on will be recorded for posterity, allowing you to exercise your card by running some graphically intensive process, and then find out exactly how your system copes under pressure.

Version 2.18.0 brings (see the changelog for more info):

- Added support for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660, RTX 2060 Mobile (TU106-B), Quadro RTX 5000, Quadro RTX 6000
- Added Hotspot temperature monitoring for AMD Radeon VII
- Vega 10 & Vega 20 Hotspot no longer disabled by default
- Updated PCI vendor database to add new companies and remove unused entries
- Ensure "Sapphire" vendor name doesn't get displayed on PCPartner OEM cards
- Fixed crash on startup during BIOS parsing on older NVIDIA cards (GeForce 500)
- Fixed GPU-Z hang during splash screen on some systems
- Fixed system crash on some AMD systems during BIOS read

Verdict:

This portable and easy-to-use monitoring tool can help you with many graphics problems, from discovering which BIOS version you have to checking for an overheating GPU

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.31 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
