Hi NaliLord

Now I have switched my GPU monitor skin from HWiNFO to your AMD plugin. :-)

So far, it works well with no problem. In fact, I can't get rid of HWiNFO because I still depend on it in my CPU monitor skin. But I really appreciate your cool and neat plugin.

I gave it a try with my RX 580 and it works great. It gives a solution for AMD cards that's basically instant for setup and still has what most people use of the HWiNFO sensors (Name, Temp, Memory, Activity, Fans, etc.). For myself I use just enough of HWiNFO's sensors to keep using it, but as you mentioned, plugins/addons that don't need additional software or extras are fantastic.

I made two example skins for use, one with all the measure IDs used and one simplified to the commonly used measure IDs. I set it to 4.3 for the minimum Rainmeter version, I'm using Rainmeter 4.4 but I'd assume it should work fine for the stable 4.3. If anything should be changed feel free to edit and repackage it.

Nice, so the development effort was worth it :)

Alex, that's awesome, very cool example skin! I'm using Rainmeter 4.3 and it works fine. :thumbup:

Hey,
I added measures for Driver Date and Driver Version but for the Power consumption I have to disappoint you, not possible without low level access to the card and I'm personally not interested to add kernel mode drivers to the plugin. If you know your card you can do some hacky calculations via the Activity and Power Level or Vddc.
