Nvidia Inspector : Overclocking Tool for Nvidia GPU’s

Nvidia Inspector is a third party tool for all the Nvidia chip based graphics cards. It can be used to view the detailed information about your graphics cards. It supports both the inbuilt GPU’s (the ones that come pre-built on the motherboards) and the add-on graphics cards (the ones that you install in the PCI or the PCI-E slots of the motherboard). But it works only and only if the graphics cards used the Nvidia chipset. In addition to displaying the information about the GPU it can also help you overclock the graphics cards.

Nvidia Inspector is a portable tool and can be run without installing it in your Windows PC. It quickly gathers and displays the GPU related information in the small window. Among other things, it displays the GPU name, BIOS version, device ID, driver version used, PCI-E interface, memory size, memory type and the clock frequencies of various cores of the GPU.

If you have been using an add-on card and already have an in-built GPU on the motherboard then you have two available GPU for Windows. In this case, you can view the information for both the GPU by selecting any one of them from the drop-down list displayed at the bottom of the Nvidia Inspector window.

If your GPU supports overclocking, then you can try overclocking your GPU using the overclocking section of the Nvidia Inspector. This section basically allows you to increase (or decrease) the GPU clock frequency, Shade clock frequency, memory clock frequency and the voltage levels. But before you can proceed to the overclocking section, it gives warning about the possible damage that could be caused through overclocking.

Conclusion: Nvidia Inspector is a small but powerful tool for viewing information about Nvidia based graphics cards and also allows you to overclock the GPU. It supports both the inbuilt GPU and the add-on graphics cards.
