HWiNFO GPU Skin

Post by jsmorley »

This skin uses the HWiNFO application and Rainmeter plugin to monitor information about your graphics card / GPU.

I have this configured for my card, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, but it can be altered to match the sensors for your card.

Get the HWiNFO application here:

https://www.hwinfo.com/

The Rainmeter plugin will be installed by the .rmskin.

HWiNFOgpu_1.2.rmskin

Right-click the skin to open the HWiNFO "Shared Memory Viewer", where you can get the values for the sensors for your system, and put them in HWiNFOVariables.inc.

Version 1.2 changes some cosmetics and automatically gets the card name.
Version 1.1 corrects an error in calculating the Bar gradients.

This has never worked for me. Any gpu plugin has never worked for me.
I have hwinfo v7.00 running with shared memory and rainmeter running as admin.
When I click "view Hwinfo sensors" in your skin it says "failed to connect to hwinfo", but hwinfo is running.

Even if it worked I don't understand why it does not use the nvidia dll's instead of having to keep a 3rd party app running on background.

Be sure you have Shared Memory Support checked in the Settings dialog in order to use the old Shared Memory / Plugin approach.

I don't particularly recommend that however. I think you might want to see this:

jsmorley you seem to be a walking rainmeter knowledge machine and I love this skin so I updated it to accommodate HWiNFO 7.x.

Hello jsmorley,
I would like to know if a version of this skin would be released without having to use Shared Memory Support.
I read your other posts explaining the differences and that this can be done by exporting the values to registry, but I don't know how to do it.

Thank you!

Let me look into that, probably today sometime.

Here is a re-working of that skin using the new Registry approach:

[Variables]
; * Skin Authors
; The easiest way to do this is to create variables for each of the values you 
; will be using in the skin. Give them easy to understand variable names.
; * Skin Users
; Right click this skin and select "Display Sensors"
; That will create a list of all the sensor elements you are "outputting" from HWiNFO in your default browser.
; Find the Index number for each of the elements the skin needs and set the variables accordingly.
; Note that if you later go back into HWiNFO and add or remove elements to "output",
; these Index numbers will change!

; Sensor Variables - You will certainly need to change these
