Fake GPUs Have Become A Real Thing, GPU-Z Now Detects Fake GPUs

Fake GPUs apparently has become a real thing as many of them are circulating the market. While these fake GPUs are almost impossible to spot but, GPU-Z has been updated to detect these fake GPUs.

These fake graphics cards have popped up following the downfall of cryptocurrency mining. These fake GPUs are impossible to recognize until you start using them.

However, GPU-Z can help you detect these fake GPUs as the developers have updated the utility. According to the devs, GPU-Z can now detect fake GPUs including Nvidia’s G84, G86, G92, G94, G96, GT215, GT216, GT218, GF108, GF106, GF114, GF116, GF119, GK106.

Speaking of the GPUs, PUBG developer has warned players to not update their GPU driver to driver version 416.16. According to pub Corp, the driver update is causing problems like incorrect shadows in-game.

Not only that, the newly released Nvidia RTX 2080 and RX 2080 Ti are facing problems. As reported by users, their Nvidia RTX GPUs aren’t working properly.

Some are facing fan issues while some are facing display problems. These issues could potentially be related to a faulty GPU driver. Until Nvidia confirms it, we can only speculate.

Not only that, reportedly Nvidia has locked RTX 2080 Ti’s performance. This means that the price to performance ratio is not up to the standards which the GPU is capable of delivering.

Shortly after the release of the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti, PC enthusiasts took it upon themselves to test these GPUs for the cryptocurrency mining. The results are interesting, to say the least.

The Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition managed to reach 49 MH / s clock speed while consuming 260 W of power.

The RTX 2080 Founders Edition managed to reach 36 MH / s clock speed. Compared to Radeon RX Vega 64, the RTX 2080 Ti has achieved some impressive numbers.
