GPU Utilization (Radeon HD 7950)


Recommended Posts


I've got a Radeon HD7950, but Aida64 doesn't seem to want to pick up the Utilization (load) sensor

Under load, I can see load figures using GPU-Z, but Aida64 stays at 0%. The temps align okay though. What am I doing wrong?

1) Have you tried it with the latest AIDA64 beta release? (v2.70.2267)

2) What version of AMD Catalyst driver do you have installed?

3) Can you please try it with AMD Catalyst 13.1 driver? (latest WHQL release)

We've updated the GPU utilization measurement code of AIDA64 to better suit Radeon HD 7xxx cards. Make sure to upgrade to the latest stable version of AIDA64 Extreme Edition available at:




After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.


Let me know how it works ;)

I have a similar problem. When application uses GPU then I open AIDA64 and it shows correct values of GPU usage and temperature. When I stop applicatoin and real GPU usage decreases - then AIDA64 also shows decreasing of values. Unfortunately when application resumes GPU usage then AIDA64 stucks on decreased value and cannot read new. To fix I have to restart AIDA64.

I use HD6990 and catalyst 13.1 under win7 64bit ultimate.

Please kindly help.
