Thermal Grizzly presents the WireView GPU, a device for measuring the power consumption of graphics, which was developed in cooperation with Jon "elmor" Sandström. At the same time, the U-shaped design of the adapter enables optimised cable routing for clean cable management.

What does the WireView GPU do?

The WireView GPU enables the measurement of the power consumption of graphics cards and records this data to determine the power consumption. This data can be used, for example, to determine the power costs of a graphics card or to compare the power consumption with other graphics cards. At the same time, the measurement of power consumption can be used to determine the power consumption of graphics cards over a certain period of time or with certain applications. In addition, load peaks in the
power consumption ("peaks") can be determined, which can occur during the operation of current high-end graphics cards.

Why a power meter for the graphics card?

With the WireView GPU, the power consumption of a graphics card can be displayed in real time, which is particularly relevant for extreme overclockers and hardware reviewers, but is also helpful when testing the performance of a graphics card. Since no additional software needs to be run to capture power consumption during testing, benchmark results, for example, are not affected. When manually overclocking the graphics card (e.g. with MSI Afterburner, ASUS GPU Tweak, EVGA Precision), the adjustments made in the software can also be checked directly on the OLED display of the WireView GPU in the form of the changed power consumption. In addition to displaying the power consumption in real time, the WireView GPU saves the measured data in the internal memory, for example, to record the average consumption of the graphics card over a longer period of time. The stored data can be reset during operation. In addition to graphics cards, other PCI expansion cards are also compatible with the WireView GPU as long as they have appropriate PCIe power connections.

Which WireView GPU is required?

Regardless of the number of PCIe power connectors on the graphics card, i.e. 1x8-pin, 2x8-pin or 3x8-pin, the orientation of the connectors is crucial for choosing the right WireView GPU. The WireView GPU is available in the versions "Normal" (N) and "Reverse" (R). The same applies to the 12VHPWR 16-pin power connector. If the graphics card is fitted with PCIe power connectors with the connector retaining clips facing away from the PCB, the "N" version is required. With normal horizontal installation of the graphics card, this would be at the bottom. The "N" variant is the most common type of connector orientation. If the graphics card is equipped with PCIe power connectors with the connector retaining clips aligned with the PCB, the "R" variant is required. In normal horizontal installation of the graphics card, this would be Top. This can be easily recognised by the fact that there are recesses in the PCB for the retaining lugs of the connector.
