So the Nvidia driver for Linux gives you some nice information such as:

  • VBIOS version
  • GPU Utilization
  • Video Engine Utilization
  • PCIe bandwidth utilization

The Nvidia control panel for Windows doesn't list this information. How can access this information from Windows?

Here's a screenshot from Ubuntu:

  • I can find the VBIOS Version in Windows, but I'm looking for the rest of the stuff still. I know there are 3rd party monitoring software like MSI Afterburner that will display the rest of this information (or most of it). – Tim G. Apr 26 '17 at 19:08
  • have you tried ProcessHacker? – magicandre1981 May 14 '17 at 7:34

You can see all the information by going to the System Information in Windows. On that window there is Components expandable menu in the left and expand it and select the component you want to see (on your question it should be the display). You will see all the necessary information of your hardware components from there.

To open the system information panel, do the following:

  • Right click the start menu and click "run"
  • Type "msinfo32" in the box then press "Enter"
  • I've already looked there. It does not display the information I am after. – Android Dev Apr 26 '17 at 19:45

You need to compile the plugin NvGpuPlugin for ProcessHacker to see additional nVIDIA specific details.

The GPU Utilization + memory usage is shown for all GPUs in the GPU tab of Systeminformation Window in ProcessHacker:

After much searching, I figured out that OpenHardwareMonitor has the ability to read GPU Core load, GPU Memory Controller load and GPU Video Engine load out-of-the-box:
